Do you have innovative ideas on how data can be used to address development challenges in Nepal? Then apply for the 2018 Data for Development Innovation Fund!
The D4D Program are delighted to announce the launch of the 2018 Data for Development Innovation Fund. Proposals are invited from organizations with ideas for innovations that improve the use of data to address development challenges.
The Data for Development Innovation Fund supports locally-led innovations that improve the use of data to inform decision-making, target interventions, monitor progress, improve accountability and evaluate development outcomes. Awards up to a maximum value of $10,000 per selected project will be made. In addition to funding, awardees of the Innovation Fund will receive strategic guidance to support the development of sustainable, user-centered and problem-focused innovations that are well-placed to demonstrate impact.
This is the second year that the D4D Program has run an Innovation Fund — in 2017 five awardees were supported with funding and guidance.
The deadline for applications is Sunday,21st October 2018 at 5pm. For more detailed information and the application form please follow this link — http://www.d4dnepal.org/innovation-fund/
