Online courses for think tanks: monitoring, learning and evaluation, policy-relevant research, funding models, policy influence, and strategic communications

​Project brief

P&I developed online courses for researchers, fundraisers, communicators, managers and MEL specialists of think tanks and organizations conducting research to influence policy interested in assessing and enhancing their current capacity in different strategic areas. The courses shared reflections and cutting-edge conceptual knowledge as well as specific methodologies and tools, and promoted peer learning by exchanging experiences and practices of participating think tanks. These courses were delivered in short and long versions, and some of them included partners such as Southern Hemisphere in South Africa and the On Think Tanks School.
