Principal Components

Network

LASER PULSE has global reach, through a growing network of 2,400+ researchers and practitioners in 56 USAID interest countries and around the world, with expertise in all development sectors. 

Identifying of Research Needs

LASER PULSE helps identify research needs for critical development challenges by using a systems framework and collaborating with USAID missions, bureaus, and independent offices and other local stakeholders.

Research Funding

LASER PULSE funds research  through two mechanisms- core and buy-in

  1. Buy-in funding: LASER PULSE works with USAID missions/bureaus/independent offices to refine development challenges and assemble, fund, and support research teams from its network to carry out the research project.
  2. Core funding: LASER PULSE issues an RFA based on the identified research needs and makes awards that bring together a collaborative team of researchers and practitioners to carry out research in a USAID interest country for 1-2 years that leads to change in practice or policy to address a global development challenge.

Embedded Research Translation

LASER PULSE promotes a research translation model in which translation is embedded across all phases of the research project. The model is called Embedded Research Translation (ERT) and is defined as an iterative co-design process among academics, practitioners, and other stakeholders in which research is intentionally applied to a development challenge. Core to this approach are four pillars- partnership, process, product, and dissemination.

Gender Integration

LASER PULSE funds research that integrates gender considerations to address inequalities that are barriers to development and human rights.

Capacity Strengthening

LASER PULSE works directly with the RFA awardee and Buy-in teams and its wider network of researchers and development actors to strengthen and sustain their capacity for development research and research translation and thus contributes to USAID partner countries on their Journey to Self-Reliance.
