ASIRPA: socio-economic analysis of the diversity of Impacts of Public Research for Agriculture

Case studies

Over 40 standardized cases

The five first cases, studied in 2011, were pilots to design the assessment method. A standard has been developed, including a report template and 3 analytical visuals: the chronology (adapted from Welcome Trust), the impact pathway (adapted from CGIAR)  and the impact vector.

In a second phase starting 2012, a new batch of cases have been studied to account for a variety of situations and scientific divisions of INRA.

Since 2013, the scientific divisions took over the ASIRPA method and applied it on a regular basis to produce case studies, with the support of the ASIRPA team.

Over 40 cases have been studied on May 2016:
