Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Governance Lab  
This grant will enable the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Governance Lab (MIT Gov/Lab) to develop a doctoral training program, creating a pipeline of scholars trained in collaborative research with practitioners and enabling others to replicate the model. The MIT Gov/ Lab will build on existing work in East and West Africa and expand research-practitioner collaborations to Mexico, Brazil, and Asia. It will experiment with new ways of collaborating with practitioners to identify important research questions and co-producing scholarship. The MIT Gov/ Lab will develop and disseminate tools and templates of its practitioner-oriented research model to use in doctoral trainings and expand its reach through collaborations with other research institutions, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
