Call for Expression of Interest | Case Studies and Prototypes for Gendered Design
Case studies and prototypes for Gendered Design in STEAM
in Low and Middle-Income Countries

Carleton University in Canada is launching a call for expressions of interest on Gendered Design in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). This call is part of an explorative research program and is funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC, Canada).

The definition of Gendered Design used by this call is the practice of reflecting upon and incorporating gendered considerations when designing technology-based solutions, applications, methods or processes. Gendered considerations especially pertain to women, who are too often underrepresented and/or overlooked in technical and design fields. It is intended that such an approach will lead to and promote new or improved services, products, processes and systems designed using gender analysis, generating substantial benefits for society and advancing gender equality.

Individuals and institutions are invited to submit expressions of interest in one of the two following streams:
• Stream 1: “Case Studies” - 15 to 20 grants between $10,000 and $15,000 CAD each;
• Stream 2: “Case Study + Prototype” - 10 grants of a maximum of $35,000 CAD each.

Submission deadline: September 27, 2019
