The RISE Directorate convenes a partnership of three organisations to lead, manage and implement the research programme:

An Intellectual Leadership Team, comprised of world-renowned scholars in the field of education, provides research advice and oversight to the programme.

The programme also benefits from special advice from expert individuals on the programme’s Delivery Board.

RISE is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), with an Education Team who remain engaged in the project.  RISE is also supported by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
