Benefits for Behaviour Changers and co-funders to join this Task
Non-state actors who are in active development of a behaviour change programme or intervention focusing on the hard-to-reach will be invited to join the project as “implementation” partners. These Behaviour Changers will work closely with the Annex researchers (OA, NEs, PhD students and Project Partner/s) on the field pilots determined in Subtask 4. At the end, they will have conducted a new (or evaluated a current) behavioural field pilot and will have completed formative, summative, outcome and process evaluations with guidance on how to replicate and / or scale-up their pilot.
In addition, all experts joining this Task (formally, or in-kind) will partake in the following benefits:
Opportunities for Global Networking and Collaboration
• They will become part of the combined expert platforms with 100s of experts from many different countries, research disciplines and sectors;
• They will gain access to global dissemination and cross-country case study comparisons via the highly-reputable IEA TCP network;
• They will gain access to, and participate in the IEA DSM University including developing and disseminating their field pilots in promoted webinars, peer-reviewed publications and technical reports;
• Reducing duplication of efforts by learning from real-life field research so we can move from individually-focused, programme-level approaches to collaborations aimed at the common goal of achieving systemic, societal changes.
Access to Cutting-Edge Tools and Resources
• Behaviour Changers can learn from and share best practice, case studies, and research methodologies;
• They can get access to, and expert support for, the validated, standardised, robust research process developed and tested in this Annex;
• They will get expert facilitation and backbone support to roll out and evaluate field research pilots.
