Coming soon: CEDIL call for applications for research projects and innovative impact evaluations

The Centre of Excellence for Development Impact and Learning will issue a request for applications for research projects and innovative applications that contribute to their strategic research agenda.

This pre-announcement should enable prospective researchers and evaluation specialists to develop project ideas and assemble teams in preparation for two calls - one for large projects (up to £1 million) and one for small projects (under £300,000) – which will be issued in early February 2019.

Feb 1, 2019

Themes and criteria

CEDIL will fund research projects and innovative impact evaluations which address three themes:

  1. Evaluating complex interventions
  2. Enhancing the transferability of evaluation through middle range theory
  3. Enhancing the use and usefulness of evaluation findings

To maximise the impact of its funded research, CEDIL will prioritise applications from researchers and evaluation practitioners in the Global South, and those which can demonstrate strong relevance to the programmes and policies of CEDIL’s funder, the UK Department for International Development (DFID). CEDIL is committed to supporting gender equity and diversity.
