Training on Data Collection and Analytics Framework

This Capacity Building component aims to increase the SAIS 2 Innovation Fund grantees’ understanding of capturing their projects’ impact by creating an evidence base showcasing change in the local ecosystems. To facilitate the training, SAIS 2 collaborated with Loughborough University London, a top 10 UK university and home to some of the world’s leading researchers on design thinking, inclusive innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems.The training will support the projects in producing short impact case studies over the duration of project implementation, covering pre-, during and post-project phases.
