About the ALL-IN Research Network


The ALL-IN Research Network strengthens the capacity of development economists in Africa and global south countries to fully engage and take the lead in defining research priorities that have transformative impacts on public policy in their countries. The Network has a particular focus on supporting the development of high-quality research grant proposals for large-scale international funding opportunities.


African researchers generating actionable evidence to support effective development policies in their countries.


  • Build collaborative partnerships with institutions, experts and like-minded individuals.
  • Build capacity to meet research network inquiries.
  • Increase collaboration and funding opportunities for members of the ALL-IN Research Network.
  • Increase recognition of and demand for African-led research.

Overview of the Network

The ALL-IN Research Network is a collaborative initiative between the International Centre for Evaluation and Development (ICED) and the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Markets, Risk and Resilience (MRR Innovation Lab) at the University of California, Davis. The Network provides opportunities for African economics researchers to learn by doing in collaboration with mentors and peers from the Network’s management institutions and their research networks. All invited researchers begin as an independent cohort and then become part of the MRR Innovation Lab’s virtual research consortium which includes participation in learning events, annual meetings, and training programs. These events, along with other ad-hoc meetings as appropriate, further enhance capacity and creates opportunities for future areas of inquiry that both broaden and deepen research networks for all participants. The Network also circulates grant opportunities, gives participants the chance to form teams and provides peer feedback on grant applications.
