These grants are focused on parts of the innovation lifecycle that are often under-resourced: problem recognition, advancing seed-funded projects, and project diffusion.
Our goal is to support innovators across the entire innovation lifecycle. The recent external evaluation of our programme and our strategic review identified the need for additional focus on the less-resourced innovation stages of problem recognition and diffusion. It also highlighted the importance of providing continued (end-to-end) support to innovation in the humanitarian system.
Through this Call, up to ten small grants of up to £50,000 each will be made available for the following innovation stages:
All projects funded through this call will need to be completed no later than 31 December 2018.
