GCP training Stories of change
January 22, 2018 By: F&BKP Office Image: Perspectivity

On November 1, 2017, NWO-WOTRO together with the Food & Business Knowledge Platform offered a training to GCP consortia on how to write and tell stories of change. The training aimed to inspire researchers to identify and present their research insights and to address various target audiences. Dutch ARF project members were also invited. The training was given by Petra de Boer and Lisette Gast from Perspectivity. Please find the report with the exercises of the day here.   


While all GCP consortia have developed a Theory of Change that visualizes and describes the desired long-term outcomes and envisioned pathways, the importance of tracking small changes is often forgotten. Maybe because in the light of long-term outcomes they seem less relevant. However, it is valuable to share insights on observed changes during the implementation of the research and move beyond the reporting of activities implemented. The regular sharing of new insights, observed changes and key turning points with the research consortium, research partners, GCP funders and the broader public, contributes to adaptive learning between partners and of the entire system.


The goal of the Stories of Change training was to enable GCP researchers to document their key turning points and research insights and turn these into attractive and informative publications. For example, participants were invited to write blogs, create a podcast or infographic, or write an article.

Several stories of change were developed after the training. Please find them below:
