Over the last plan period, APHRC designed and piloted a number of training programs to meet growing demand from individuals and institutions for stronger research capacity. These pilots will help the RCS Division define how to make the Training Program fully market-driven and sustainable through full cost recovery. APHRC plans to develop its Research Leadership and Training Center to meet its growing need for training facilities, and to support the offering of collaborative graduate degree programs that address current and future regional priorities.
The training workshops and seminars of APHRC focus on three thematic areas:
- Research Leadership: Training programs under Research Leadership focus on developing and supporting research leaders in sub-Saharan Africa to become globally recognized names in their respective fields.
- Institutional Leadership and Management: Training programs focus on supporting senior leadership at African institutions to lead and drive change within their organizations.
- Research Communication: This training program targets senior researchers, policy makers, and media executives with the aim of bridging existing research-and-policy gap and facilitating greater translation and use of research evidence in policy formulation and program improvement in the region.
