Reflections on the Intervention (ROI)
The second set of intervention tracking studies (ROIs) for the Scale Fund Round 1 researchers will soon be available here. From April 2013 these researchers will be conducting field work for their third tracking study, while the Scale Fund Round 2 and Innovation Fund researchers will start their first tracking study.
Data collection for the third phase of research papers has been completed and first drafts are currently being finalized. These will then be peer reviewed throughout April and May before being finalized and uploaded in July 2013. They focus on the following areas:
