The International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) is a collaborative platform for policy makers, practitioners, national academies, and academics to share experience, build capacity and develop theoretical and practical approaches to the use of scientific evidence in informing policy at all levels of government. INGSA is offering six professional development and research grants to support early-to-mid career researchers or policy practitioners in Low and Middle Income Countries.
They are particularly interested in the policy maker perspective. As such, they are seeking research projects that help to answer this question: “What are the challenges in your country/region/organisation limiting the use of scientific evidence by policy makers? How will your research contribute to overcoming them?” More on INGSA Call for applications
