GEOACT – Call for Proposals

GEOACT is implemented by a consortium of 6 partners: IRD (Research Institute for Development) (Project coordinator); Association of Caribbean States (ACS), Trinidad&Tobago; Caribbean Science Foundation (CSF), Barbados; Fondation FOKAL, Haiti; Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC), St. Lucia; Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF), Haiti. This project has received funding from the European Union under the ACP Innovation Fund, which is part of the OACPS R&I Programme.

The general objective of GEOACT is to improve our knowledge and understanding of R&I ecosystems at the national and regional levels and facilitate R&I interactions throughout the innovation chain, from user to scientists, to build up a shared R&I vision and strategy in the Caribbean Region. The focus is to support the collaboration of Civil society organisations (CSOs), citizens, entrepreneurs, innovators, universities, research centers, regional organisations and public authorities in so-called ‘‘living labs’’. They will have the opportunity to share research knowledge, explore digital and project development/management tools, and develop inclusive, smart and sustainable innovative solutions that will enable Caribbean countries to adapt to the effects of natural hazards and climate change.

In accordance with the objectives of the Project; the consortium is calling interested parties to submit their proposals in relation to the two separate calls listed below:

           – Call 1: Mapping & diagnosis of R&I ecosystems, R&I strategy and innovation brokering

           – Call 2: Capacity Building in innovation and Valorization

Deadline: 31 August 2022
