FUNDING: Global Development Network’s Global Research Competition (GRC)
The second phase of GDN’s Global Research Capacity Building Program is the annual Global Research Competition (GRC). In this stage social science researchers from developing countries and transition economies, and the best performing researchers from the Regional Research Competitions (RRCs) are invited to team up with peers from around the world to collaborate on joint research projects.
Applications for the GRC grants are invited from cross-country/inter-regional teams of up to four early-career researchers (one principal researcher plus one or more research collaborator). GDN leverages an advanced online platform to support the cross-country/inter-regional team formation.
Each year, the competition focuses on diverse research themes which originate from the policy research priority areas defined by GDN's Global Research Agenda and are in line with GDN's future Global Research Projects. The nature of the research themes are such that they encourage collaboration amongst researchers and are of relevance to more than one region.
Themes for the 2013 round of the GRC are:
- Inclusive and Sustainable Growth
- Food Security
- Political, Economic and Social Transformations
Deadline: September 20, 2013
