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.
