Cambridge Global Challenges


Academics are under pressure to show “impact” in their research, while NGOs are under pressure to rigorously evidence their work. These two pressures have led to partnerships between the two groups becoming increasingly popular in the last few years. Exploring these partnerships, a group of INGO and university staff have produced Rethinking Research Partnerships discussion guide and toolkit.

The Rethinking Research Partnerships: discussion guide and toolkit is designed to reflect the processes of designing, implementing, analysing and communicating research, with the aim of making research more inclusive and more impactful. It touches on a range of aspects of partnership and evidence. 


Please find the discussion guide and toolkit here.

Cambridge Global Challenges is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
