Request for Expressions of Interest: IPA’s Partnership for Tech (P4T) | Subsidized Research and Testing Partnerships in Edtech
This call for expressions of interest is now closed. Thank you to those who submitted EOIs.
About Partnerships for Tech (P4T)
Innovations for Poverty Action’s Partnerships for Tech (P4T) program aims to unlock the potential of technology for global development. The program’s current focus is on supporting organizations in realizing the potential of digital approaches in primary and secondary education for improved learning outcomes.
P4T is an initiative of IPA’s Right-Fit Evidence Unit (RFE). RFE provides MEL-focused support for implementers to use data and evidence to improve their programs, adapt to new contexts, and demonstrate their impact.
Based on P4T’s review of the edtech landscape, we believe that improved research and testing is key to realizing the sector’s promise. Specifically, P4T seeks to collaborate with organizations implementing education programs with digital components or edtech products to:
- develop or adapt their research and testing approaches
- build their capacity for research and testing execution
To do so, IPA will provide selected organizations with subsidized research and learning support. By doing so, we also aim to contribute to the evidence base on edtech programs and share learning and knowledge with the sector.
Request for Expressions of Interest
IPA invites short expressions of interest (approximately 250-800 words) from organizations seeking to enhance their impact through the use of research and testing. Organizations could include:
- Non-profit edtech organizations
- For-profit edtech organizations
- Organizations that develop or implement digital education programs or integrated programs with digital components
IPA will offer tailored, subsidized services to high-performing and/or high potential organizations to address their key challenges and opportunities as part of this request for expressions of interest.
