EACH MEMBER of the research team must fill in the Capacity Building form.
- You cannot view the other team members' forms via your personal PEP account.
Section 1 - Your profile and contributions
The profile information is filled automatically by the system based on information in your PEP personal profile. Make sure is accurate and up-to-date.
Report your (expected and/or achieved) individual contributions to the project in terms of:
- Technical/scientific aspects of the research work (including literature review, data cleaning, etc.)
- Policy engagement and research communications to maximize chances of impact/influence of your research
Break down these contributions into the various tasks involved/achieved.
- Use the plus sign (+) to add new boxes (this will create a list of your individual tasks/contributions)
Note: You will update this list regularly, as your contributions to the project expand and and evolve.
Section 2 - Your personal knowledge gains
List the main types of knowledge and skills you have gained SO FAR in terms of:
- Research capacity (technical/scientific knowledge)
- Policy engagement and research communication
For each item of both categories:
- Select the "type of knowledge/skills" from the drop-down menu (top-left side of each subsection) and briefly describe the knowledge or skills you have gained in the text box to the right.
Report whether you have had the opportunity to 1) use this knowledge in other research work or 2) share or transfer the knowledge to peers.
If not, leave the button on "no" and move onto the next section.
If you have, click on the button to change it to "yes", and briefly explain in the text box underneath.
Click the plus sign (+) at the end of the subsection to add a new type of knowledge in either category.
Repeat these steps as many times as necessary, and revisit this section to add updates.
Section 3 - "Demand for expertise"
Report whether (from your perspective) there is demand in your country for the kind of expertise/capacity that you have sought to gain through PEP.
If not, go to the next section. Note: If the situation changes at any point during the course of your project, you can change your answer to "Yes".
If there is demand, select "Yes" and:
- Explain what you mean (including the source of this demand) in the text box immediately underneath the Yes/No button
- Describe your perception of how this demand has evolved since the beginning of your PEP project: select "increase", "decrease" or "stable" from the drop-down menu and type an explanation.
- If you selected "increase" in part 2, report on whether you think your project activities may have contributed to this increase and explain.
Note: Steps 2 and 3 may only be relevant towards the end of the project cycle. Fill out/up date this section when it is relevant.
Section 4 - Career events and new research grants
Use the same process as in the earlier sections. Click on the plus (+) button to add a box for each career event.
The same applies for the Anecdote and New Research Grant categories.
