The Global Innovation Competition (GIC) 2016 offers the chance to win
a grant from a pool of £450,000 and attend the Global Innovation Week
in Accra, Ghana.

The themes for the competition support both the goals of the Open
Government Partnership and the Sustainable Development Goals, which
this year will replace the MDGs as the marker for global progress on
development issues.

We are calling for ideas for projects in Ghana, South Africa, Kenya,
Indonesia, the Philippines, Liberia, Tanzania, Bangladesh, Pakistan,
Mozambique, Uganda and Nigeria.

The deadline for submissions is October 4th.


Clift Note: By the way, if deploying tech and models that make
parliamentary candidates far more accessible online before elections
is a big need/goal, check out the emerging global open source engine
called YourNextRepresentative. You might take this framework and adapt
it for use in one or more of these countries in a grant proposal:

P.S. I don't work directly with this project, but seek to deploy the
code in Minnesota. In general, I think we need more shared civic tech
tools that work everywhere by design and can leverage resources and
skills in all kinds of countries and cities.
