Call for Proposals in West and Central Africa and the Indian Ocean: Generating and mobilizing innovative knowledge for regional education challenges
Call for Proposals
The Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) is a joint endeavour of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) to strengthen the national education systems of GPE member countries.
IDRC and GPE invite proposals from individual organizations or consortia of multiple organizations, for applied research projects to generate and mobilize knowledge so national education systems in developing country contexts can address shared policy challenges related to improving access, quality and the performance of their systems.
KIX regional calls prioritize funding to Southern organizations. Proposals must be submitted by nationally/internationally registered or incorporated organizations in Africa. Given that KIX supports inter-country knowledge sharing and exchange, each project funded through this call is expected to work in three or more GPE member countries in the region, facilitating learning within and across the countries involved.
KIX will allocate CA$7.75 million through this call, with individual projects receiving funding between CA$750,000 and CA$1.20 million. Projects can be up to 33 months in duration.
To complete an online application, select ‘Apply’. In case of the proposals involving multiple organizations, the lead organization should submit a single application on behalf of those involved.
