Putting Research Into Use

The Research Into Use (RIU) programme is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) that aims to take existing research knowledge and get it out into the communities of developing countries, where it can make a real impact.

An introductory video highlighting the work of the programme is available on YouTube

This programme is the the first product of a shift in DFID priorities which seeks to move away from the generating new knowledge to ensuring that existing research is disseminated in ways that are relevant to people who may be able to make use of it.

Find out more about this from the research section of the DFID website, the Research for Development portal and comment on the new DFID research strategy.
