BRECcIA Case Study: Building stakeholder engagement perspective into your research

Building stakeholder engagement and relationships is essential to research success. Watch Sebastien Reichel discuss how and why.

In this BRECcIA Case Study, Mr. Sebastian Reichel, BRECcIA’s International Stakeholder Coordinator, will introduce you to organising stakeholder perspectives in your research.

BRECcIA’s Principle #3, incorporating stakeholder perspectives into research, prompts you to consider the importance of stakeholder knowledge and experience to your project. It also prompts you to consider how you will incorporate stakeholder perspectives into project planning.

Importantly, stakeholder relations are not only formed and maintained through good will and direct engagement. Research projects have long timelines and researchers will not always be able to interact with stakeholders. Stakeholder relationships might have to be maintained long distance and over weeks or months. This calls for strong communication habits and requires that you and your team have a clear, unified understanding of stakeholders’ needs and priorities in relation to your project.

Here, Sebastian offers an inside look at BRECcIA’s own stakeholder mapping technique while discussing how to equitably build stakeholder perspectives into your research planning
