From my colleague Clare comes good news for anyone interested in expanding our knowledge of ICT4D issues in Asia, particularly ICT's impact on society, through rigorous academic research.
IDRC and Singapore's Nanyang Technological University SiRC (Strengthening ICT4D Research Capacity in Asia) have joined together and announced their first call for grant proposals under the new initiative SIRCA. Grants of up to SGD33,000 are available.
For information about SIRCA see www.ntu.edu.sg/sci/sirc/sirca
Clare also says that anyone interested in ICT4D in Asia can contact Clint Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org as he is trying to get together a group of people interested in submitting a joint proposal for SiRCA.
Thanks to Clare for the information. Funds for ICT4D research! What a great thing! Please let me know if you apply so I can follow your research, learn from it and share with others.
The learning never stops!
