Short description: The Fund for Innovation in Development (Fonds d’Innovation pour le Développement or FID) is an initiative to support innovations that contribute to reducing global poverty and inequality. Through flexible grant funding, the Fund wants to enable innovators and researchers to test new ideas, build rigorous evidence for effective programs, and scale the highest-impact and most cost-effective solutions. FID relies on rigorous evidence of impact in determining which applications to fund and also supports research to generate evidence on development innovations.
Regional focus: Low- and middle-income countries eligible for ODA, see list here.
Eligibility to apply: FID accepts applications from nearly any type of applicant, independently or in partnership with others, including: research institutes and institutions of higher education, governments or public agencies, non-governmental organizations, and private, for-profit companies.
