The Low and Middle Income Countries Research Network (LMIC) brings together evidence from research projects in the College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow, to inform development policies, debates and practices.
LMIC aims to promote dialogue and partnerships between researchers, governments, multilateral institutions, and communities to address global challenges.
We believe that research generates positive impacts when a wide range of stakeholders are involved in knowledge production and dissemination, from local organisations to international actors.
