Call for Proposals: Impact of Open Educational Resources

The Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) programme invited researchers worldwide to submit research proposals on the theme: Impact of OER in the developing regions of Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Researchers from around the world were encouraged to submit proposals for research on OER in developing nations in Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa that qualified for Official Development Assistance. The proposals were required to cover formal education, informal or non-formal learning, at all levels – primary, secondary, tertiary, including life-long learning, especially in the development sectors of poverty reduction, sustainable development, agriculture and health.

Grants of MYR 150,000 to 225,000 (approximately CAD 50,000 to 75,000) were made available for winning research proposals. North-South or South-South collaboration and interdisciplinary research are encouraged. Research teams will have up to 18 months to conduct their research projects and produce research findings.

Call for proposals is now closed.

We will publish the grantees of this call by the end of January 2015.
