About the Evaluation
LINC is conducting the Mid-Term Performance Evaluation of the Long-Term Assistance and Services for Research (LASER) activity.
The goal of the Evaluation is to improve USAID’s Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation (DDI)/Innovation, Technology, and Research Hub/Research Division’s (ITR/R) understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of LASER in terms of design, partnership choices, implementing mechanism, benefits to stakeholders, and mission engagement.
The LASER activity was launched to support long term research efforts that address specific development needs identified by USAID. LASER has a five-year implementation period, and its implementers consortium is led by Purdue University.
