PRCI Announces Upcoming Webinar on Mobile Phone Survey Research During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Please join us on May 28th at 10AM ET as we kickoff our PRCI Webinar Series with a webinar on conducting survey research in the time of lockdowns and beyond

To flatten the curve and prevent further escalation of the spread of COVID-19, universities and research institutions around the world have suspended all research activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. As a result, field research involving interactions with human subjects has come to a standstill. In a time when data and evidence are most needed to make informed policy and programmatic decisions, researchers are unable to do primary data collection. If you are an international development researcher and are feeling helpless about this situation, don’t; thanks to the increasing penetration of affordable mobile phones in developing countries, you can still do some meaningful and timely research while working from home. To learn more, please join us for an upcoming webinar on the best practices for conducting mobile phone survey research.

Thursday, May 28th, 10:00AM - 11:00AM ET

Register for the Webinar

Registration is limited to the first 500 participants but we will also be streaming the event live on our Facebook Page.
