Policy outreach committee

The purpose of the PEP Policy Outreach Committee (POC) is to ensure that each project supported through the PEP “Grant Plus” research support program is relevant for and communicated strategically to country-specific policy stakeholders and needs.

The POC is composed external experts in policy uptake, with support from senior PEP staff in communications and monitoring and evaluation - see below. In addition to advising priorities for policy-relevant research agendas, POC members are also assigned as mentors to PEP-funded research teams, to advise in the design and implementation of effective policy engagement and communication strategies.
