The Fund for Innovation in Development

Type of project:  The Fund aims to support promising ideas with high potential for impact against poverty and inequality, rigorously evaluate their effectiveness and accelerate their deployment on a larger scale.  FID particularly supports, but is not limited to, initiatives related to education, health, gender equality and climate as well as those from the 19 priority countries for French development policy. FID is a unique opportunity for many organisations as it helps to overcome the lack of public and private resources dedicated to innovation and experimentation, to conduct a proof of concept and to encourage subsequent investment.

Location: Low- and middle-income countries

Eligibility: All types of organisations can apply, either independently or as part of a consortium: research institutions, governments, NGOs, private companies, universities etc. Only projects led by individuals or multilateral organisations are not eligible to apply.

Grant size: Various grant stages available up to 4m EUR
