KIX launches calls to mobilize knowledge for regional education challenges

July 31, 2020

The Knowledge and Innovation Exchange, a partnership between IDRC and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), launched the third of four regional competitive calls to generate and mobilize innovative knowledge for education challenges shared across GPE member countries.

KIX supports low- and middle-income countries to build stronger education systems, thereby accelerating progress towards achieving SDG 4.

The overall goal of the calls is to generate and mobilize knowledge to support national education systems in developing country contexts so they can address shared policy challenges related to improving access, quality, and systems performance.

Each call is designed to respond to the demands of the GPE member countries for knowledge and innovation. To identify these demands, the KIX regional hubs led a process across GPE member countries (from March to July 2020) to identify shared policy challenges for public education systems. The process involved consultations with government and non-governmental education stakeholders from the countries, regional experts, and a review of education sector plans and regional education analyses.

Aligning calls for proposals with key priorities that emerged, KIX intends for the projects it funds to be directly relevant and useful to these education systems. This page will be updated with links to each call once they launch.
