This time AI4D partnered with the Deep Learning Indaba to strengthen AI research communities and the work they do during the Covid-19 pandemic, by funding research projects across Africa that are collaborative at heart and have a strong development focus.
This Call for Proposals invites individuals, grassroots organizations, initiatives, academic, and civil society institutions to apply for funding for mini-projects.
These can be new or existing projects at various stages, including projects that create and analyse new data sets around a research hypothesis, to later stage projects that require a “final push”.
A mini-project could also be early-stage research around our Grand Challenge of curing leishmaniasis. We expect to fund around 15 mini-projects ranging in value from $2,000-$8,000.
