About the event

Much research has focused on understanding the challenges to scale innovations in the humanitarian sector. Our ‘Scaling Series’ of learning papers focuses on helping innovators, the innovation ecosystem, and the wider humanitarian sector to take practical steps to overcome these challenges and increase the frequency of innovations transitioning from proof-of-concept pilots to sustained adoption in humanitarian response.  

This online event will launch the third paper in our ‘Scaling Series’, How to Scale: Tactics to Enable the Adoption of Humanitarian Innovations, which provides a playbook of tactics for innovators who are aiming to scale through enabling other organisations to adopt their innovations. These tactics are also useful for innovators who are seeking to scale their innovation to other teams, offices and locations within their organisation that have not been involved in developing or testing the innovation. The panel discussion will be held on Wednesday 23 November 2022, 12:00pm 1:00pm GMT.

Speakers

Our panel will feature individuals who contributed to the paper, representatives from organisations included as case studies, alongside those with wider experiences and perspectives of adoption in the sector. Speakers include: 

  • Syed Imran Ali, PhD, Research Fellow, Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research 
  • Emma Proud, Head of Learning and Adapting, Brink 
  • Gargi Banerji, Founder-Director, Pragya
  • Tom Heath, WASH Technical Advisor, Action Against Hunger (ACF)
