Equitable Partnerships Resource Hub

The UKCDR & ESSENCE equitable partnerships resource hub aims to support all those involved in the research process to embed practices which ensure equity in the design, delivery and dissemination of research 

 

The hub brings together relevant tools, guidance and resources from global partners focused on ensuring equity in international research partnerships. 

If you have any resources which you think should be included in this resource hub, please send these over to us at info@ukcdr.org.uk.
