Government partners, policymakers, and researchers will share their experiences on () how these priorities are being addressed through KIX’s applied research projects and Hubs, and (ii) how education stakeholders in GPE partner countries are using evidence and knowledge from KIX’s innovations and activities. The event will also provide an update on progress made in the third year and information on upcoming priorities.
