CIR office


Using cloud-based collaboration and project management software (WRIKE), we organize all community-integrated field research-related activities between our unit’s teams and external stakeholders. The CIR team provides logistical support, mediation during community entry, and training of field workers. In addition, all activities are captured in the CIR database that enables ongoing monitoring of all community-integrated research activities. 


The CIR office further manages our up-coming workshops and consultation services. These include:

  • AUTHeR’s Qualitative research workshop series. 
  • ATLAS.ti workshops. 
  • Individual consultations for qualitative research methodology and community-integrated research.
