A Passionate Pursuit

Research for development can make a difference with the right kind of support.
 It needs to be encouraged and championed by people who truly believe that innovation and knowledge can solve some of the most critical challenges of the developing world. It needs passionate people to help researchers be heard by decision-makers.
Research needs the support of people like you.
From program officers working directly with local researchers to administration professionals ensuring we can act as efficiently as possible, IDRC is dedicated to improving the lives of people in developing countries. With a team of inspired minds, we work together to support the research that will lead to practical solutions to the problems facing the developing world today.
