Need

Project aim
• What is the value proposition and the processes and resources required which will engage researchers in incorporating an adoption pathway in the design and delivery of the projects they are involved in, where researchers can articulate ‘where’ on the impact pathway their research starts and finishes and what role it plays in identifying core problems and finding solutions.
Project outcome
• Researchers and extension officers actively engaged in the design of a theory of change that will best inform the pathways to adoption and impact.
Context
• This is not about the design of the technology or the research methodology (although these will contribute to adoption and impact), it is specifically about mapping the role of extension in supporting projects to optimise adoption and impact.

Objectives

1. 1. Researchers and extension practitioners who are involved in the project increase their knowledge, attitude, skill, aspiration and practice (KASAP) in applying an impact pathway approach to their work.
2. 2. Researchers and extension officers actively engaged in the design of a theory of change that will best inform the pathways to adoption and impact.
3. 3. A practical co-designed model/process and guidelines of a theory of change that is ready to pilot with researchers and extension practitioners for levy funded projects.
