Citizen-driven innovations: call for CSOs in Armenia – Apply by 31 March

The UNDP Armenia’s Kolba Lab opens a special call for proposals seeking partnership with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) around co-design and incubation of citizen-driven innovative ideas. The call is launched within the EU-funded ‘FUTURE TODAY: Empowering women, youth and children for deepening democracy in Armenia’ project.

The call aims at mobilising a cohort of innovators in identifying, developing and testing bottom-up citizens’ proposals on how to improve participatory governance at local and national levels and ideas related to alternative connectivity, social networking, peer-to-peer support, and mobilisation.

The call is open to CSOs from Armenia. The six shortlisted applicant organisations will be invited to the Co-design and rapid-incubation boot camp (three days). Up to three selected teams will receive funding of up to US$ 7,500 for pilots in Armenia to be implemented within three months. 

The deadline for applications is 31 March.

The Boot Camp will be organised during the second half of April 2023. All the costs related to the accommodation and transportation to the venue and back will be covered by the UNDP Kolba Lab.
