SciDev.Net, the world’s leading source of reliable and authoritative news, views and analysis about science and technology for global development, is partnering with Sida to deliver science communication training to researchers at the University of Dar es Salaam.

The purpose of the training is to build the skills and confidence of researchers to reach policymakers and the broader public with their findings through the media. This will increase researchers’ chances of influencing policy and personal decisions and will also support the university’s efforts to increase the translation of research into useful products, policies, and practices for society.
