The University of Central Asia’s (UCA) Institute of Public Policy and Administration (IPPA) conducted a two-week course on applied research design for 37 participants in Bishkek. It taught learners the basics of designing applied research projects, and was targeted towards independent analysts and staff at think-tanks, civil servants, and non-governmental organisations who wish to acquire applied research skills.

In contrast to academic or fundamental research, that seeks to answer universal questions, the job of applied researchers is to generate answers using sound evidence and logic to solve specific down-to-earth problems. The course was taught by Mahabat Baimyrzaeva, Associate Professor of Management and Policy at Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California, USA. 

The course participants came from a broad cross section of organisations, such as the National Bank of the Kyrgyz Republic, Academy of Public Administration under the President of Kyrgyz Republic, International Ala Too University, The World Bank, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
