The DRUSSA.net site remains live as a publicly accessible resource. There is a wealth of programme-derived knowledge, tools, and resources that university leaders, research staff and research uptake managers should continue to be able to access and use as they strengthen their university management systems for getting research into use.
There is another, new public access location for the DRUSSA Learning Resource . The Association of Commonwealth Universities has developed the Learning Resource to serve as the long-term home research uptake resources and other literature and tools for research uptake you may find useful.
The Learning Resource is housed on the ACU website and it re-curates a selection of 160 documents from DRUSSA.net that can be utilised as training aids, tools and resources in strengthening research uptake systems going forward, and will also be supplemented with new resources under development – such as online research uptake guides and new literature in the field.
It is organised into six searchable categories:
The DRUSSA programme has ended but Research Uptake at sub-Saharan African universities continues to be strategically important in realising their mission to be effective knowledge producers, users and intermediaries. The universities are carrying out their research uptake policies, their specialist research uptake communication staff are utlising their skills to support academics doing developmentally relevant research – the process and results of which need to be shared with their communities, networks and stakeholders. The programme’s Research Uptake toolkits are in use, particularly to support early career researchers to integrate conceptualisation, planning and implementation into their projects.
Please bookmark the DRUSSA Learning Resource and keep visiting for new developments, training guides, and other material underway. We look forward to seeing you there!
