SurveyCTO Webinar Series: The 2021 Research Grant Experience, Lessons from Academic Researchers

In the first year of the data collection research grant, SurveyCTO awarded 2 full grants to Luisa Cefala (UC Berkeley) and Patrick Agte (Princeton University). In this webinar, they share what they have been working on and their experience.

Luisa’s project is titled “Labor market constraints to technology adoption: Evidence from rural Burundi” and he has been working with NGO One Acre Fund. She carried out a randomized intervention to test whether training the village labor force in new agricultural technologies benefits village workers, through more employment, and the community, through more takeup of the more advanced agricultural technology.

Patrick has been working on a project titled “The Equilibrium Effects of Improved Public Primary Healthcare: Evidence from the Health and Wellness Centers in India.” As part of this project, he has been collaborating with the Government of Rajasthan in the rollout of 150,000 remote maternal and child health outposts to investigate the equilibrium effects of the reform using experimental and quasi-experimental methods.
