Social R&D Boosterpack Series

Social Research and Development Boosterpack for Social Purpose Organizations

A recent report highlighted the importance of supporting organizations in social R&D Capacity Building. Building on this, and also as part of the Investment Readiness Program, we will be running a Social R&D Boosterpack for Social Purpose Organizations to learn the fundamentals of Social R&D and practice putting skills into practice.

This will likely be a 4-8 part series held virtually in February 2021. It will support Social Purpose Organizations to develop social R&D capacities in order to better tackle complex social challenges and also work towards investment readiness.
