Evidence for Education in Emergencies (E-Cubed)

There is an overwhelming lack of evidence as to what works to promote children’s learning in crisis-affected contexts. In response to this, and to reflect Dubai Cares’ commitment made at the World Humanitarian Summit to allocate at least 10% of all its funding for education in emergencies towards research, Dubai Cares launched a research envelope focusing solely on generating more evidence on effective preparedness and response strategies in education in emergencies.

This research envelope, titled Evidence for Education in Emergencies (E-Cubed), aims to fund research ranging from robust randomized controlled trials to evaluations, assessments and gap analyses geared to inform the policies and practices of international and national decision makers, implementing agencies and other local stakeholders (teachers, parents, local government, civil society, etc.) involved in education in emergencies. The convening of partnerships between academia and implementing agencies is a practice Dubai Cares hopes to encourage in order to foster effective cooperation amongst different actors within the education and emergencies field, to ensure the highest quality outcomes.

Dubai Cares and the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) have partnered to officially launch the E-Cubed Research Envelope. Proposals will be accepted and processed on a rolling basis September 19 - November 19, 2017. The initial round of research investments will be announced in the first quarter of 2018.

To find out more about the E-Cubed Research Envelope including eligibility, criteria for funding, and themes of inquiry visit the INEE webpage. We encourage you to share this call for proposals with your respective networks.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
