Session 2389: Science, Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships in Evaluation

01-05-2017 15:20

This session will focus on the impact evaluations and their effect on the design of programs involving science, technology, innovation, and partnerships (STIP) interventions. The papers presented will include scoping work of impact evaluations around STIP performed by 3ie and impact evaluation examples. Annette Brown will present the preliminary results of 3ie’s scoping work and evidence gap map around evaluations regarding STIP interventions. Afterwards, two researchers whose work is indicative of the STIP scoping work will present their impact evaluations of different STIP programs, focusing on the innovation and technology parts of STIP. Richard Lester from the University of British Columbia will present their paper on SMS support and ART adherence among HIV-infect adults. Finally, Rodolfo Stucchi from the Inter-American Investment Corporation will present their paper on the effect of innovation policy on employment and wages in Argentina.

The science, technology, innovation and partnerships (STIP) evidence scoping project represents the first phase of a larger collaboration between USAID’s Global Development Lab and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) to catalyze interest among development stakeholders around a STIP research and learning agenda; to identify the STIP evidence base through a scoping study; and then to expand the STIP evidence base by focusing investment in the production of impact evaluations and systematic reviews around STIP interventions. The objective of the STIP evidence scoping activity is to facilitate access to rigorous evidence on how STIP contribute to programs for achieving socio-economic improvements in developing countries and to inform an agenda for research and programming that will ultimately inform the integration of STIP into development approaches in low- and middle-income countries. The scoping paper will analyze both the supply of and demand for evidence on STIP.
