Fund name: Networked Economies (Innovation, Science and Technology, Networking, Policy, Intellectual Property Rights)
The Networked Economies Program at IDRC invites applications from independent policy research organizations in the global South that are committed to using research to inform and influence national- and regional-level cyber-related policies in digital rights, cybersecurity and innovation policy. This initiative will provide funding to promising policy research organizations, and will work with successful applicants to improve their research, policy influence, and organizational performance.
EOI submitted should meet the following priorities:
• Develop their own robust cyber policy research agenda that addresses all facets of cyber policy, including human rights, security and innovation and the interplay of these issues for global South countries (locally, regionally and globally). The ability of the organization to demonstrate how it will address all three facets will determine eligibility;
• Produce credible, legitimate and locally-relevant research that convenes different perspectives on critical cyber policy issues;
• Strengthen their ability to inform and influence policy development; and,
• Improve key aspects of their organizational performance and institutional capacity in order to support cyber policy subject expertise.
