In February of this year ASSET partners from across the globe met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to discuss the research progress and challenges of the year past and to plan for the remainder of the project ending in 2021.

The week started off with a day-long workshop facilitated by the ASSET capacity lead, Dr Rosie Mayston and ASSET lead investigator, Prof Martin Prince. The morning started off with a workshop on research impact and how the different work packages can optimise their approach to achieve impact through the course of their interventions. The afternoon was spent learning and discussing the different aspects of writing and publishing research.

The following three days were spent with all the work packages giving updates on their progress as well as ASSET-funded PhD students and postdoctoral fellows presenting their research. Delegates then participated in an workshop where they examined different and their applications. These implementation workshops were lead by Prof Nick Sevdalis and Dr Nadine Seward.

At the end of the week, teams from the various work packages have developed research impact plans, shared their implementation science challenges and set some goals in terms of writing up data.
