- | GMT+00:00 Unknown Region (GMT) Time

Teatime with AuthorAID is a monthly community event, where scholars from all over the world join (with their favourite variety of tea/drink), engage in informal conversation, extend their network and explore collaboration opportunities. Unlike a typical webinar, it thrives on informal and immersive discussions between participants and the host, as well as among participants themselves. In this session, we will engage in an interactive discussion on how to make research relevant to policy and why it matters.

The host of the event is Abiodun Egbetokun. He is a Senior Lecturer at De Montfort University, UK with two decades of experience in policy-relevant research. Previously, he was Deputy Director of Research at Nigeria’s National Centre for Technology Management, where he led impactful projects, including Nigeria’s first social science research mapping and the evaluation of major entrepreneurship education and youth employment interventions. He was President of the Nigerian Young Academy and a Science Advice Policy Fellow of the US National Science Foundation. Abiodun interacts regularly with international and third-sector organisations including UNIDO, GIZ, i4Policy and the African Union Commission. He mentors early-career researchers through AuthorAID and the Development Studies Association.
