…and after the seminar?
The idea behind ESI capacity building is not long-distance advice or isolated seminars and workshops, but hands-on involvement in a joint research endeavour to meet a shared, ambitious objective. The only real learning is by doing.
Following each seminar, ESI offers to engage actively in a second phase of capacity building. This has involved ESI analysts working with local researchers following the seminars on further project ideas for a few months, to develop a joint research agenda.
We can do this for participants who are affiliated to existing research institutions and want to strengthen their research capacity, or for those who aspire to create something new.
