Learning, planning and adapting UFE and ResCom according to emergent need : case study of the open and collaborative science for development network (OCSDNet)
The Open and Collaborative Science for Development (OCSDNet) project is a network of research institutions with limited staff time and resources. The DECI-2 team (Developing Evaluation and Communication Capacity in Information Society Research) focused its attention on evaluation and communication needs adapting the Utilization Focused Evaluation (UFE) and Research Communication (ResCom) concepts. A poster summary elaborates on specific evaluation questions, communication objectives, data collection instruments, and communication media and methods. The OCS community needs to further develop a common language and principles in discussing concepts of science, openness, and development.
