This call for research proposals aims to identify and address systemic barriers that stand in the way of greater participation by women and other underrepresented groups in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in the public and private sectors in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).

The call is open to research institutions, consortia, or non-governmental organizations with proven research capacity. The institutions should have a strong presence in eligible low and middle-income countries. The research must be proposed and executed by an institution or group of institutions that are independent of the institution(s) to be studied.

The deadline for submissions is 15 August 2019.
