IDB launches call for innovative solutions and disruptive ideas to benefit people with disabilities in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Call for solutions for the labor inclusion of people-with a focus on gender-with disabilities in Latin America and the Caribbean. More inclusive, more responsible and more competitive firms through technology and innovation.Call for ideas that can break those barriers that limit the labor inclusion of women and men with disabilities.
The Inter-American Development Bank, through the competitiveness and Innovation Division’s Innovation Lab, is launching two international calls for proposals to benefit people with disabilities in Latin America and the Caribbean, based on a methodology called “crowdsourcing,” a process whereby certain activities are outsourced through a crowd of people (usually in dispersed locations) that respond to a call to try and solve a problem. This initiative is financed by the Italian Trust Fund on Information and Communication Technologies for Development.
Deadline for proposals submission is December 31, 2012.
