This year CIAT’s annual meeting, also known as KS Week is … unfortunately a 6-day power point event but I must admit that the level of discussion is good and that people seem engaged.
The innovation comes this time from the documentation and reporting side. The visit from ICT-KM’s Enrica Porcari and Peter Ballantyne to promote availability and accessibility of research results came timely to get CIAT’s communications unit started in the use of social media tools.
CIAT has set up a Web page with links to several social media channels. Have a look at:
- The photos. Neil Palmer recently joined CIAT as a public relations officer and proved to be a very talented photographer
- The video interviews
- The presentations and more then 100 posters that are part of an exhibition
- The blog, available in Spanish and English, where we collectively capture as many sessions as we can.
The communications staff is encouraged by the increasing number of visits: 600 in less then 3 days.
