RC3 mission statement

RC3 is the Red Cross and Red Crescent Research Consortium. It is an open and coordinated distributive network of entities and initiatives created within the International Movement, that are entirely or partially dedicated to research, scientific methodologies, tools or knowledge production activities. Besides connecting their specific expertise, RC3 members join forces to support the International Movement to achieve its community-driven goals and missions aligned with the IFRC and ICRC strategic frameworks.

Our Vision: Science Connected to Humanity

The added value of RC3 collective efforts resides in integrating and making more accessible the academic communities, scientific results and expertise to help alleviate human suffering through building safe, resilience and sustainable communities. Through the notion of knowledge as a common good, it aims at improving the quality of humanitarian services and at increasing their impact. RC3 supports National societies, the IFRC and the ICRC in their transformation process, in the analysis of their environments and operations in order to be better prepared to global humanitarian challenges.

Our approach: Bridging science humanitarian practices and policies – at local, national, regional and international levels –.

RC3 means of actions are the use of primary and secondary data, collaborations with the academic sector, editorial tools, scientific events and training development. RC3 promotes and supports Movement-wide research collaborations and the development of a strong scientific culture rooted in a people-centred approach. It establishes resources and expertise synergies between its members and the Movement entities.

Our strategy: achieve a greater humanitarian impact based on an evidence-based culture with optimised resources.
