What is the Research Matching Facility?
Our Research Matching Facility is the first facility that offers humanitarian agencies and higher education institutions the opportunity to search or advertise for research and project partners.
How do I use it?
If you are working for a humanitarian agency and have identified an issue that you would like to investigate with an academic research partner, you can either: search our list of academic partners, or fill out an Academic Partner Request Form, which we can then use to create an advert on this site. We can offer support in formulating research questions and presenting the request for an academic audience. This service is completely free!
