Upcoming Events

Regional launches: Solutions for addressing humanitarian needs – insights from regional consultations on the role of research and innovation

Multiple dates Multiple locations

Join us and our partners for a series of regional events where we explore the role of humanitarian research and innovation (HRI) at multiple levels in developing culturally and contextually appropriate responses. We will share insights from consultations examining the perceptions of regional and national humanitarian actors, and shed light on priority topics and areas that need HRI attention. The events are open to all to register and attend, however if you are a humanitarian actor, donor, researcher, innovator or practitioner these events could provide specific regional insights that could inform what you fund, how best to prioritize and topical areas of research.
