Workshops are a valuable and engaging way to learn, providing a fantastic opportunity for collective training sessions, skills transfer, networking and information sharing. The range of workshops and format for delivering the sessions can be creatively designed to best serve the context of the learning. Initiatives such as these help to support and strengthen capacity at both an individual and institutional level.

REDe Specialist Skills Workshops Brazil 2020

This initiative aims to support local responses to epidemic outbreaks and relevant research agendas and encourage activities to further strengthen regional research capacity. Given the social-economic burden of disease outbreaks in developing countries, we would like to broaden our work alongside Brazilian researchers to build long-lasting health research capability in Brazil as part of our mission to promote research capacity development in Latin American and Caribbean countries.

Earlier this year, REDe launched a call offering funding and seeking collaboration in co-organising a series of *free* training workshops to promote research skills development for healthcare professionals across Brazil. In response to this call, four teams have been successfully awarded to design and deliver the next series of skill development opportunities.

Please see here for more details and updates regarding these open workshops!
