DRUSSA Universities combine their strategic thinking to mutual benefit
At the DRUSSA Benchmarking meeting in March, university representatives discussed what steps were needed to make progress towards compiling effective RU Strategies. Over the weekend of 11th and 12th June, a working group from DRUSSA Universities met in Johannesburg to collectively draft a guidelines document on ‘How to write a University Research Uptake Strategy’. It was agreed that in the context of institutionalization of a new strategic approach, the process of change flows from (1) Awareness, to (2) Policy, (3) Strategy and (4) Action plan. The Research Uptake Working Group (RUMWG) team focused specifically on (3) Strategy, as they collaboratively drafted the guidelines. They worked through key insights that should be taken into account when compiling a Research Uptake Strategy, and will be sharing these, as well as the guidelines document, with the rest of the DRUSSA community.
