ICTD researchers and ICTD practitioners or implementers should but seldom work together. With increasing demand from funders for innovation using ICTs for development, practitioner run programs provide the grounds for researchers to jointly pilot and research ICTD innovations. This session will bring leading researchers, practitioners and funders together in a focused and participatory format to learn about each other’s work and priorities, partnership mechanisms, and to begin collaborating.
