Stakeholder analysis - Clara Richards

A proactive approach is important if research is to have impact and benefit society. Key to a good research-uptake strategy is a clear understanding of the different players and stakeholders involved. This Learning Lab explores stakeholder analysis as the basis for successful engagement with potential end-users of new evidence. Of interest to everyone involved in the process – researchers, practitioners, decision-makers – this webinar will:

  • analyse why it is important to carry out a stakeholder analysis
  • review a number of tools that can be used
  • work through the use of one particular tool in hands-on detail
