SciDev.Net organised focus groups in Fiji, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand (June 2012). Participants included senior science communicators, policymakers, scientists, academics, NGO officials, as well as professionals coming from the private sector.
Topics discussed included setting the right environment for science and innovation, to dissemination and uptake of evidence and research results for development and poverty reduction. Participants also helped generate insights into emerging trends and capacity building needs within their areas of specialisation.
