BSDR is a non-profit research organisation set up by the authors of the QuIP - a small team of researchers from the Centre for Development Studies (CDS) at the University of Bath - with the ambition to bring more research into practice.
From the BSDR 'About Us' page:
"Our current mission revolves around disrupting ‘business as usual’ in evaluation – promoting better standards of qualitative and mixed methods impact evaluation of investments with explicit social and development goals. The launchpad for this was the development of the QuIP (Qualitative Impact Protocol), curated and nurtured by BSDR.
We are a small hub of like-minded individuals at the centre of a larger network of trained associates and aspire to stay small – keeping a strong focus on setting the QuIP standard with high-quality work of our own, training others to use the approach, and continuing to write and present academic research in related areas...
The QuIP was developed at the University of Bath during a 4 year ESRC funded research project, Assessing Rural Transformations. BSDR has been curating the approach since 2016 by undertaking studies for a range of commissioners. As well as learning from each study, the work has enabled us to start funding the development of a training programme for QuIP Lead Evaluators, Analysts and Field Researchers. We re-invest all funds into development and dissemination work and hope to make QuIP tools and training even more widely available to evaluators in the future."
