FUNDING: Development Innovations Ventures
Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) aims to institutionalize further in USAID the serendipitous process by which great ideas are conceptualized, developed, refined to meet real-world operational challenges, tested, and ultimately scaled up to change the world in fundamental ways. DIV brings together diverse innovators from academia, the private sector and NGOs to identify, develop, and transition to scale promising approaches to pressing development problems around the world. All projects must contribute to one or more development goals, such as improved incomes, health, education, environment, and governance for people in the developing world. There will be a special focus in the USAID initiative areas of food security, science and technology, global health, Afghanistan/Pakistan, entrepreneurship, and climate change.
Deadline: July 21, 2011
