IDRC is pleased to announce the projects and research teams selected for the Gender in STEM Research Initiative (GIST), which aims to increase the contribution of science to gender equality to advance women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and to increase gender analysis in STEM research.
This funding opportunity seeks to strengthen science, technology and innovation (STI) in Latin America and the Caribbean to foster the region’s development, by supporting 1) regional collaboration for research and policy uptake; 2) inclusive STI; and 3) strong granting councils and regional coordination agencies.
Over the next three years, 12 new research projects supported by IDRC will address the gender barriers that hinder women’s access to economic opportunities, while supporting sustainable climate-resilient recovery.
