A new project funded by IDRC and led by the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) seeks to facilitate the flow of information between academia and governments to ensure that sound scientific evidence informs policymaking.


As part of this grant, applications are now open for six professional development and research grants that will support early to mid-career researchers or policy practitioners in low and middle income countries.

Each grant recipient will manage and conduct a project of their choice on the priority research theme of the role of scientific evidence and advice in support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Grant recipients will become INGSA Research Associates and receive up to €15,000 each to complete their project. Additional support will be made available for applicants to travel to the INGSA conference in Japan in September 2018.

For information on eligibility and to apply, visit the INGSA’s Research Associate Grant Program page.

Applications close 15 November 2017.
