Structure of sua outreach

STRUCTURE OF SUA OUTREACH

Organized through special centrally controlled units

Consulting Bureaus/Services


Typical setup of university outreach

TYPICAL SETUP OF UNIVERSITY OUTREACH

Use centralized units to provide service to research-functional units (projects)

Donor funding through basket funding bringing important stakeholders implicitly defined in competitive grant system

University defined incentive for outreach institutionalized in promotion criteria

Reaching out and in

Reaching Out and In

  • Farmers Show and trade fairs bring university down to stakeholders

  • Short-term training strengthen interaction with the industry


Can we define the gaps

CAN WE DEFINE THE GAPS ?

There is a need to look for improved approaches for effective outreach by:

Re-assessing University mandates and who are beneficiaries (direct and indirect)

Re-assess demand of various stakeholders,

Define the environment/context that will make outreach strategy work

Assess what we can and try to offer, learn as you implement


Bsu outreach strategy

BSU OUTREACH STRATEGY

Our main output: Stronger Universities

  • Our transitional outputs:

    • Improved human resource base

    • Curriculum and research program improved

    • Enhanced research vigor and impact orientation (R for D)

    • Improved working environment and facilities for research training and outreach


Food for thought

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

  • Traditional dissemination methods, M&Es and impact assessment must be augmented with innovative methods that internalize outreach Examples:

    • action research, experiential research “learning with stakeholder” use feedback more effectively for each important steps

  • Continue use of more pragmatic approaches such as:

    • problem-based training, case teaching and involvement of industry (e.g. value chain participants, policy makers, government, NGOs, service providers etc) in classroom and

    • Universities cross fertilization involving part time lecturing and exchange visits


Bsu outreach strategy1

BSU OUTREACH STRATEGY

Defined basics for effective outreach (future targets)

  • Internalized participation of stakeholders early on and throughout the project/program

  • Quality follow-ups of adoption and application

  • Develop forums for University – Stakeholder interactions

Lessons learnt from the outreach activities

  • SME have limited or no knowledge of opportunities for collaboration with RU

  • Insufficient focus from RU on the potential opportunities of collaboration with SME

  • High response rate from contacted enterprises (1/3 submitted proposals)

  • Necesary to develop more concise concepts for collaboration between the business sector and the universities.

  • Necessary to master relevant specific natural and social science knowledge; technical knowledge about current (environmental management) practices;

  • Possess political/tactical flair for stakeholder positions and interests
