Learning from AgResults

AgResults learning takes two forms:

  1. Learning generated from the experience of AgResults stakeholders in designing and implementing projects;
  2. Learning generated from the External Evaluator in its independent ongoing review of AgResults projects.

AgResults has generated a wealth of learning, results of which can be found in the Learning Library.

Framework for Evaluating Innovation Challenges

This brief proposes an approach to learning from innovation challenges run by the government, public sector, and non-profit institutions. We present an evaluation framework for sponsors and managers to use to improve the design and implementation of future innovation challenges, by learning from existing challenges what works and what does not work.
