Call for research projects on Gendered Design in STEAM

Call for research projects on Gendered Design in STEAM

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC, Canada) and Carleton
University are pleased to announce a call for expressions of interest to
research on Gendered Design in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art
and Mathematics) in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).

We ask that you please disseminate this call to your networks and contacts
that you feel may be interested.

Please find the full text of the call attached and at the following web


The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is September 27, 2019 at
11:59 pm (UTC/GMT -4 hours, time zone).

This call will be of interest to LMICs researchers who are currently involved,
or who are interested in becoming involved, in the conceptualization, design
and/or production of technology-based solutions, applications, methods and
processes. They are invited to submit expressions of interest in one of two

Stream 1: Case Studies 15 to 20 grants valued at $10,000 to $15,000
CAD each;

Stream 2: Case Study + Prototype 10 grants valued at a maximum of
$35,000 CAD each.

Funding from this call will support researchers in LMICs to adopt and share
research and design methods and practices that bring gender considerations to
the development of technology-based solutions to improve lives and livelihoods
for all and particularly for women and other disadvantaged people.

Expressions of interest must pertain to innovations linked with STEAM fields,
with a particular interest in the following sectors: transport/mobility;
renewable energy; manufacturing; housing; infrastructure; and accessibility

Applications from both individuals (especially for Stream 1) and teams
(especially for Stream 2) will be considered. Funding must be used for
projects conducted within LMICs and by scholars and innovators located within
those countries.

Successful applicants will not only receive funding to prepare case studies
and/or prototypes, they will also benefit from capacity building activities,
resources and regional expertise to assist them in incorporating gender
considerations into their project, and/or in sharing and validating their
related experience with the cohort of successful applicants.

Please send any additional questions to

Best regards,

Bjarki Hallgrimsson, Director, School of Industrial Design, Co-Principal

Dominique Marshall, Professor, Department of History, Co-Principal
