Radio, Convergence and Development in Africa

Call for concept notes - Deadline January 8, 2010
Carleton University's Centre for Media and Transitional Societies
(CMTS), in collaboration with Canada's International Development
Research Centre (IDRC), is pleased to launch a call for concept notes,
in French or English, outlining proposed research examining the impact
of convergence between traditional radio and new information and
communications technologies (ICTs) in sub-Saharan Africa.

For full details on the research competition, the call for concept notes
and the submission process, please visit the project website at
www.cmts-cmst.org

Ultimately, the purpose of this competitive research project is both to
generate important research and to support African researchers in their
efforts to produce rigorous and analytical social science research
findings on the ways that radio and the growth and penetration of new
ICTs - such as mobile phones, the Internet and other digital
technologies - have affected social, cultural, political and economic
development.
The call for proposals will be run in two stages.

1. Call for concept notes (submission deadline: January 8, 2010). All
interested applicants are required to submit a concept note outlining a
synopsis of a proposed research idea.
2. Call for full proposals. Based on the assessment of the concept
notes, shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal
in early 2010.
There are three levels of targeted funding, each with different
eligibility criteria:

* A set of small seed grants at CAD$7,500 each will be awarded to
promising graduate students, small organizations and individual researchers.
* Grants of CAD$25,000 open to researchers affiliated with an
established organization.
* Grants of up to CAD$100,000 open only to researchers affiliated
with an established organization.
Again, for full details on the research competition, the call for
concept notes and the submission process, please visit the project
website at www.cmts-cmst.org

Le Centre des Médias et Sociétés en Transition (CMST) est fier
d'annoncer en partenariat avec en collaboration avec le Centre de

Les principales missions du projet «Radio, Convergence et Développement
en Afrique» seront de générer des initiatives de recherche et de
supporter les chercheurs africains travaillant de façon rigoureuse à la
production de données quantitatives et qualitatives permettant l'analyse
de l'impact de la radio et, plus récemment, de la pénétration croissante
des nouvelles technologies de communication - téléphonie cellulaire,
Internet et autres canaux de communication électroniques - sur le
développement culturel, économique et politique en territoire africain.

L'appel de propositions s'effectuera en deux (2) étapes distinctes:

1. Appel de propositions conceptuelles (date limite: 8 Janvier 2009):

2. Appel de propositions complètes: Les individus ou organisations
retenus lors de la première étape (voir ci-haut) devront soumettre une
version plus étoffée de leur projet de recherche au début de l'année
2010. Elle devra tenir compte des commentaires émis sur leurs
propositions conceptuelles.

Le projet «Radio, Convergence et Développement en Afrique» prévoit trois
(3) plans de financement distincts liés à des critères de sélection précis:

* Des bourses de 7,500$ Cdn seront offertes aux étudiants de cycles
supérieurs, petites organisations ou chercheurs indépendants ayant des
projets prometteurs;
* Des bourses de 25,000$ Cdn seront offertes à des individus ou des
chercheurs affiliés à des organisations reconnues;
* Des bourses de 100,000$ Cdn seront offertes uniquement à des
chercheurs affiliés à des organisations reconnues.
