Free webinar series: Going beyond context matters / #3 Culture / December 13

Are you a policymaker, a researcher, a capacity building expert or a donor interested in better understanding how context affects the interaction between knowledge and policy?

Join our free webinar series where we will explore in depth the six main dimensions of context (for a sneak peek navigate our interactive product) and discuss how we can concretely incorporate them into our interventions and work. framework1

In our third webinar, we will delve into Dimension #3 of the framework: Culture, which is the set of shared basic assumptions learned by a group as the correct way to perceive, think, and feel the organizational problems. What are the main incentives and motivations within public institutions that enable or hinder the use of research in policy? How can we understand the frequently hidden or implicit values and beliefs that so often affect our efforts? Can we build on levels of openness to change?

This is a 1.15 hour webinar that will center on these important questions. Join us on December 13rd, at 1 PM GMT. If interested, send an email to with your name, organization position, and country, and tell us if you plan to attend Webinar #3, other webinar (s) or the whole series. We look forward to an enriching debate and exchange!
