IDRC and the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on May 20, 2024 in Research Funding

IDRC and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) are pleased to invite proposals to become implementing partners in the new GPE KIX Observatory on Education System Resilience initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to contribute to the improvement of education system resilience of GPE partner countries through research and evidence. The task of implementing partners will be to establish and operate regional observatories, conduct applied research, and mobilize its findings.

The main objective of the Observatory initiative is for GPE partner countries to have and use research and evidence to make their education systems more resilient and better prepared for future disruptions. The specific objectives of the initiative will be as follows:

  • generate and mobilize evidence about how education stakeholders understand and practice education system resilience in GPE partner countries.
  • generate and mobilize insights into changing landscapes, potential future disruptions and opportunities, and effective approaches to addressing them in GPE partner countries.
  • use the generated evidence to identify recommendations for crisis preparedness and the education system resilience of GPE partner countries.

Canadian researchers can participate as members of consortia but cannot lead the project. The lead organization must be headquartered in an LMIC.
