Matchmaking workshops are key to fostering collaboration between CEGA and BRAC researchers. To catalyze new research partnerships, the Collaborative conducts a series of activities to match BRAC researchers and program managers with CEGA faculty, based on programmatic interests and scientific expertise. This is done through joint workshops that feature brainstorming sessions and networking opportunities in addition to outreach and coordination by CEGA and BRAC technical staff.
BRAC Impact Evaluation Workshop This workshop will be led by CEGA affiliates and BRAC-CEGA fellows, and will provide an opportunity for BRAC program staff to learn more about how to generate and use high quality training. The two-day workshop will include presentations on casual inference and impact evaluation methods, formulating research questions and choosing indicators, as well research presentations which demonstrate how the methods are applied. Date: July 3, 2018- July 4, 2018 Location: Kampala, Uganda Agenda: See working agenda here.
BRAC-CEGA Research Matchmaking Conference The BRAC-CEGA Research Matchmaking Conference will offer ample networking opportunities and foster collaboration between BRAC and CEGA researchers. The conference will feature presentations from BRAC and CEGA researchers on recently completed and future studies, as well as hands-on matchmaking sessions. By bringing researchers together in the same space, the goal of this workshop is to catalyze innovative research ideas and establish new partnerships.
Date: July 5, 2018 Location: Kampala, Uganda Agenda: See working agenda here.
South Asia Regional Impact Evaluation Workshop Designed with a mix of interactive sessions, plenary presentations, and parallel tracks, participants learned the basics of impact evaluation, while also receiving hands-on technical assistance to help them design and implement evaluations in the field. By encouraging learning through information exchange, the goal of this workshop was to leverage the application of skills to build long-term capacity for rigorous impact evaluations. Date: Apr 27, 2014 — Apr 30, 2014 Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh
BRAC-CEGA Partnership Launch The BRAC-CEGA partnership launched on April 3-4, 2012 in Berkeley. The two-day meeting was an opportunity for CEGA faculty to learn about BRAC's programs in the areas of agriculture, finance, community development, health, education, and gender equity. BRAC discussed its existing research capacity; the organization has already completed a few randomized evaluations, mostly in partnership with Robin Burgess at LSE. An aim of the BRAC-CEGA partnership is to expand on this early work, and further build BRAC’s research capacity, through partnerships with US faculty. The launch event also provided an opportunity for CEGA faculty to share their research interests with BRAC, particularly in areas relevant to the NGO’s programming. Select PhD students attended the meeting, with the aim of identifying research projects that they can pursue under faculty supervision.
