Subject: RIU Innovation Challenge Call for Proposals
To: GFAR-Stakeholders-L@mailserv.fao.org

Dear colleagues,

 

I am forwarding herewith information about the Research Into Use Programmes' Call for Proposal. Please read carefully the Guidelines. Specifically, I would like to call your attention on the following points:

 

§         The RIU's Innovation Fund will support only initiatives that will build on existing research findings in order to maximize impact through multi-stakeholder partnerships. In so doing, it is important that you link up with those who have been involved in previous DFID funded projects in your respective countries. The database can be accessed via the website address www.researchintouse.com

 

§         For this "Asian Call," countries that are specifically being targeted are Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Nepal, Pakistan and  Vietnam. 

 

§         Strictly follow and complete the Concept Note application form in order not to be automatically disqualified for technical reasons, e.g. incomplete submission.  

 

§         Deadline for submission of complete form is no later than 12 noon (GMT) on 30th  September 2007 to l.nickoll@nrint.co.uk

 

Below are further details about RIU's Innovation Challenge Fund Call for Proposals.

 

Best regards.

Oliver

__________________________ 

The Research into Use team are writing to you because we believe you might be interested in taking part in our Innovation Challenge Fund call for proposals.  Firstly, in case you are unaware, I should explain that the Research into Use (RIU) programme is a new initiative funded by the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID) which was recently launched in June 2007.  Its purpose is to make existing natural resources research outputs (in the form of technologies, policies, processes and knowledge) more accessible to the poor and to enhance their uptake.   We are focusing on maximizing the investment and building on the legacy  of DFID's  11 year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) programme which took place between 1995 and 2006, and by so doing, increase our understanding of how the up and out-scaling of these research outputs impacts upon poverty reduction and economic growth.

One of the ways we hope to achieve these goals is the Innovation Challenge Fund which we are now launching in selected countries in South/South-East Asia.  A database of the RNRRS outputs under consideration for up and outscaling  is available to view via our website www.researchintouse.com .  It is important to make clear that the purpose of this call is not to undertake new research, but to enhance access to existing research findings in order to maximize impact through multi-stakeholder partnerships.

Initially, concept notes will be invited where proposed activities relate to the following 6 Asian countries; Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Nepal, Pakistan and  Vietnam.  In order to apply, we ask that you complete a Concept Note application form.   Please find this form attached, along with guidance notes that explain more about the RIU programme and how to apply.  We recommend that the guidance notes are read carefully.  These are also available from our website.

If you would like to apply and feel that your proposed initiative meets the criteria mentioned in the guidelines, please could you complete the attached form and return it no later than 12 noon (GMT) on 30th  September 2007 to l.nickoll@nrint.co.uk.  We would also be grateful if you could disseminate this email further amongst other likely interested colleagues in your own networks.

Further information on the Research into Use programme can be obtained from our website.  You are also welcome to email me with any Innovation Challenge queries you might have; my contact details are all listed at the bottom of this email.  Please note that I am unable to answer queries over the telephone and that it is our policy to publish on our website all questions posed and relevant answers, so everyone has equal access to information.
