Global Development Network

The Global Development Network (GDN) announces the launch of its project on Building Research Capacity in Least Developed Countries; with a focus on scientific research in economics and social sciences designed to inform national and local policymaking. Under this project, GDN will select up to four research institutions, based and working in Least Developed Countries (LDCs), on the basis of a 24 month (two year) research capacity building program that they will design and propose; and will partner with them over the duration of the program to refine, implement and monitor it. Institutions should propose a program that is demand-led, designed to support the contending institutions in addressing their research capacity gaps with an aim to raise and strengthen their research and outreach skills in a sustainable manner. The grant for each selected institution will range between US$ 40,000-US$ 100,000 per year, contingent on the scope and success of the proposed program.
