The Networked Economies program will support research that helps developing countries use digital innovations to create inclusive economic opportunities and advance democracy. More particularly, its focus will be to:
- test and scale digital innovations to improve entrepreneurship, education, and democracy;
- connect the next billion to economic opportunities; and
- improve the governance of cyberspace.
This program strongly supports IDRC’s new strategic plan, Investing in Solutions, which will guide the Centre’s work over the next five years, sharply focusing IDRC's vision on producing knowledge, innovation, and solutions to improve lives and livelihoods in the developing world.
