Kittens cry when research is put on a shelf to gather dust. How can researchers make their research more relevant and useful to program administrators? How can program administrators get their big questions answered in a way that helps them deliver programs? How can we share research in a way that is timely, meaningful and relevant? How do we work together to ask the right questions and transmit the answers in a way that is fun and meaningful? Come join this conversation where we will discuss how to make research matter from project formulation to final results. The ideas generated in this session will be documented into a video or slide presentation to share with more people after this conference is over and guide improvements in research around the region.
