Session objectives


This activity has been designed to help us explore some of the key issues that ILRI will face as we move towards the implementation of our new strategy. The open space is very interactive and allows you to bring along and air the messages that you think are important. Think about the following issues:
  • How must we behave and arrange our work to effectively take research to development?
  • How can we assure that scientific excellence is preserved and enhanced?
  • How can we effectively learn as we go?
  • How can we prove our value-for-money to end-users and assure the ongoing confidence of our investors?
  • What are the implications for us in the way that we do our work?

This will likely take the form of parallel groups discussing issues that are important to them.

Facilitator: Stuart Worsley.
