On Thursday 23 January 2014, we hosted an 'Education Systems Town Hall' which saw five leading research funders unpack their strategies for education research in international development. Senior representatives from the UK Department for International Development (DFID), UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), World Bank, USAID and UNICEF outlined their priorities in education research for international development, and took questions.
The order of the presentations went as follows:
Below you can watch the event in full, including one-on-one interviews with three of the speakers. You can also download each of the speakers' presentation slides.
You can read a blog post from Stefan Dercon, DFID's Chief Economist, in which he sums up his perspective on the future of education research: Sunny skies ahead for education research.
One of our live stream viewers, Nisma Elias from Research for Development, wrote a blog review of our event: An "Educational" Town Hall meeting.
As well as the video we also used the #devfunding to record the event via twitter. You can see how the event unfolded below.
