New Course Announcement: 21st Century Development Research Leadership for Low Income Country Higher Education InstitutionsJeff-Goecker
The course is in response to the growing need for LMIC Higher Education Institutions to substantially increase their involvement in national, regional and international development efforts by generating the sort of research and innovations that speak to specific needs of development practitioners, there by accelerating the effectiveness of development interventions. To do so requires institutional leadership – the sort of leaders that will speed up the building of supportive research and innovation ecosystems that empower researchers in Higher Education Institutions in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) to drive this change. This course comes at a time when several long-established institutions are seeking to transform into ‘research led universities’ on the one hand, while on the other hand, there is a rapid increase in new Higher Education institutions that need capacity development support to build their young and evolving research ecosystems.
The general aim of this course is to increase the leadership capacity for research and innovations in low- and middle-income Higher Education Institutions, with a view to transforming their capacity to generate research and innovations outputs that impact on national and international development. Participating in this course will provide added information and insights to the research manager who would like to integrate a more structured approach to leading the development of a vibrant research and innovation ecosystem in their institution.

It’s probably one of the most important course to be delivered by LASER PULSE.
From experience working with HEI in LMIC, that there’s technical, academic and research talent to some degree but what these HEIs lack is leadership and good governance – inadequate organizational structure of support – operational, financial, administrative and management structures and skills and because of that many of these HEIs do not have financial and administrative autonomy and authority.
It will be highly important that the course develops relevant materials and guidance in to the leadership on HEIs on how to lead and manage a successful research university.
