Share-Net Report Dissemination Small Grants Projects 2014 & 2015

Posted by Kimberley Meijers on April 6, 2017 at 9:24 am



To contribute to the development of evidence-informed policy and practice and societal-relevant research, Share-Net International aims to share existing knowledge, to generate new knowledge that addresses prioritized research gaps, and to translate knowledge to various audiences. To reach this objective, Share-Net International offers its member organisations funding for knowledge generation, identification, translation and dissemination initiatives, the so-called “Small Grants”. The Small Grants are intended to involve Share-Net International members in small research projects that:

  • add to diverse, practical, innovative, short-term and relevant research that is not easily funded by other donors;
  • encourage meaningful engagement of, and collaborations between, members. Due to these strong linkages, the project findings can easily be translated into action;
  • allow research to be conducted in low- and middle-income countries other than Share-Net International’s three focal countries, which have been awarded NWO-Wotro funding.

Dissemination Small Grants

On January 17th, the research findings of the Small Grants projects that were released in 2014 and 2015 were presented in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We welcomed about fifty participants working in academia, at NGOs and the Dutch ministry of Foreign Affairs. The meeting was chaired by Ine Vanwesenbeeck, who works as a Professor Sexual Development, Diversity and Health at University Utrecht and is the former chair of the Share-Net International Steering Committee.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss the lessons learned and their implications for policy, practice and follow-up research.
