Implementation Research is an innovative approach to systems strengthening in which decision-makers and implementers use research to overcome implementation bottlenecks and improve outcomes. UNICEF is striving to enhance our work with partners so that we systematically identify priorities for Implementation Research to strengthen programming and improve child well-being across the life course. Join us for a virtual workshop to hear from world-leading implementation researchers, exchange lessons, and together build a collective understanding of Implementation Research, including complementarities with related concepts such as adaptive learning, systems strengthening, operational research, and scaling science.
SESSION ONE - 24th January 9.30 am to 1.30 pm CET
This session will involve multi-sectoral presentations of Implementation Research in practice for effective, equitable programming and systems reform. Plenary talks and panels of experts from across the world will highlight the lessons learned and the potential of Implementation Research, capacity building for Implementation Research, and transferability across all sectors of UNICEF’s work.
SESSION TWO - 25th January 9.30 am to 1.30 pm CET
This session will focus on the ‘how’ of Implementation Research. It will include case studies of Implementation Research and discussion of UNICEF's Implementation Research Roadmap with breakout discussion groups and Q&A.
SESSION THREE - 26th January 9.30 am to 1.30 pm CET
In this session, we will plan together how to take forward Implementation Research within UNICEF and build our capacity. There will be working groups on how to embed Implementation Research and build capacity to leverage this work within UNICEF.
SESSION FOUR - 31st January 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm CET
Key speakers from within and outside UNICEF will present an agenda for the future, setting out intentions for Implementation Research and partnership opportunities.
This event is jointly hosted by UNICEF Primary Health Care & Health System Strengthening Unit, UNICEF Office of Research-Innocenti and the Centre for Global Health Inequalities Research (Norwegian University of Science and Technology ntnu.edu/chain) and facilitated by Centre for Evidence and Implementation.
