IRP Conference | 17-19 April 2012
The first IRP conference, held in November 2009 in the Netherlands, aimed to introduce the various research themes and discuss the framework to facilitate interaction between the worlds of policy and research. At the second conference, held in Cairo, Egypt in November 2010, the progress of the different research programmes was discussed. In addition, workshops on the research and on the writing process of policy effective products were organised. A third and final conference was organised on 17, 18 and 19 April 2012.
At the time of the third conference most IRP research projects had either been finished or were in the final stages of completion. At this concluding conference, the findings resulting from the different research programmes were, therefore, presented and, if possible, synergies between the different research projects were sought.
