Call for Expressions of Interest: The Gender in STEM Research Initiative - Advancing gender analysis and women’s leadership in STEM fields (IDRC/CRDI Canada)
Deadline: 22 April 2021
Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to advance gender analysis and women’s leadership in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields through the Gender in STEM Research Initiative.
The Gender in STEM Research Initiative will fund research that helps promote women’s leadership in science — notably in natural sciences, engineering, and maths — and the integration of gender analysis in these fields. The research will identify innovative approaches that increase the capacity of universities and other higher-education institutions to be more inclusive of women and gender analysis in STEM.
The research consortia must propose research that addresses at least one of four themes:
- Including gender analysis in STEM research
- Exploring STEA+M — integrating arts, design, humanities and social sciences (A+) into STEM higher education and research
- Advancing institutional policies to promote gender equality in STEM
- Safeguarding women scientists
Applications are eligible from consortia involving at least two public universities based in at least two low- and middle-income countries as per the list of countries published on IRDC website (Colombia is included; the list is comprised of countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America/Caribbean).
Research grants will have a duration of 36 months and budgets of between 1 million CAD and 1.25 million CAD per consortium.
Deadline for expressions of interest (EoI): 22 April 2021, 17:00 Eastern Daylight Time (16:00 Colombian time)
