Scaling Science

Scaling Science - International Development Research Centre 

"Scaling science is borne of the belief that we can be more systematic and scientific about the way we scale, and that by doing so we increase the likelihood that our research will effect meaningful change. Scaling science is about scaling the positive impacts of innovation while carefully studying how scaling unfolds. To inform [their] understanding of scaling in research for development, IDRC explored the work of researchers who aimed to produce impacts at scale. This led to IDRC’s approach to scaling as a means to achieve impact that matters, and an important challenge to the predomi­nant more-is-better paradigm of scaling. Findings of this study are available in several open access formats [on their website]."
