On December 2, 2022, at 4.00 pm (EAT), CARTA will host a webinar under the theme ‘Increasing visibility of African research and researchers’ to officially launch the CARTA Evidence Website.
CARTA Evidence is an interactive platform that aims to demonstrate the impact of the CARTA network by timeously tracking, collating, analyzing, displaying, and enabling the uptake of empirical and theoretical evidence produced. The platform will create a collaborative environment for African scientists and evidence users working in communities of practice and across boundaries and disciplines.
The development of the CARTA Evidence Website which commenced in 2021 was driven by PhD candidates producing research findings that could have an impact on society thus the need to make their findings available and accessible to various audiences. The platform is now ready for use and public access even as further refinement and customization continue in the background to ensure its responsiveness to the needs of its diverse target audience.
