Launch of ResearchWatch portal
UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre has launched ResearchWatch. ResearchWatch will make available thoughtful ideas and analysis on child research and issues, in a digestible, stimulating and bite-size format.
ResearchWatch has three parts:
- Commentary – where the latest research/thinking in the chosen area is captured, and then analysed by an expert.
- Look out for' - a leading researcher will discuss their latest/forthcoming research project.
- 'The Debate' - a videoed studio debate.
Each issue will be dedicated to a theme. The first is on Early Childhood Development (ECD), in support of the new report in The Lancet, with comments by UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake. This issue was led by editor-in-chief of The Lancet, Richard Horton, Nobel laureate Professor James Heckman and UNICEF Chief of ECD, Dr Nurper Ulkuer. The second issue will be dedicated to health and equity and be timed around the “Rio Conference on Social Determinants of Health” on 19–21 October 2011.
