Applied Research & Knowledge Management

As a knowledge institute KIT Royal Tropical Institute compiles, analyses and develops new knowledge about health systems, sustainable economic development and gender, and supports others in using this knowledge for sustainable change.

Front-runner research

KIT conducts significant front-runner research about rising global issues such as maternal health, youth employment, and sexual reproductive health and rights. This enables KIT to arrange evidenced-based advice to public and private sector organisations looking to improve their development impact. It also underpins KIT’s international convening role—bringing together different organisations, facilitating knowledge exchange, and supporting collaboration and innovation for real social change.
