Joint Fund grant holder conference: Research uptake and impact

In September 2014, ESRC and DFID hosted a conference to enable researchers and others linked to the Joint Fund to share and learn from each others experience of research uptake and impact. Attendees from all three phases of the scheme and beyond came together for the one-day event in London, bringing a diverse wealth of experience of planning for, working towards, measuring and achieving impact through international development research.
