Call for Research Proposals

 

The Global Development Network (GDN) invites researchers from developing and transition countries to submit research proposals under the theme of Doing research in developing countries: the role of non-academic actors, new communication platforms and leadership in social sciences for the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on

THE AWARD

 

The Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development is a competitive research grant program under the Global Development Awards Competition 2019. The Awards Competition is administered by GDN, funded under the Policy and Human Resources Development Fund (PHRD) trust fund managed by the World Bank and generously supported by the Government of Japan. This award program identifies and funds outstanding research proposals in developing and transition countries with high potential for excellence in research and clear policy implications for addressing development issues.

 

Since its inception in 2000, GDN has awarded roughly US$ 4 million in research and project grants to finalists and winners. Nearly 8,800 researchers and development practitioners from developing countries and transition countries have participated in the competition and more than 200 awards have been conferred till date, impacting the professional visibility, global recognition and career development of the winners.

 

The three winning projects will receive grants worth US$ 45,000 in total. Finalists will be invited to travel and present their proposals at GDN’s next Global Development Conference to be held in Bonn (Germany) between the 23rd and 25th of October 2019 (details at www.gdn.int/conference2019). Travel and expenses for one representative from  each of three short-listed proposals (ideally, the principal investigator) will be covered by GDN. The awards will be given to the organization(s)/researcher(s) whose proposals to undertake research in any one of the three research sub-themes described below holds the greatest promise for improving our understanding of development issues and puts forth clear, articulate and well researched policy implications to address relevant development problems.
