Over the past nine years our Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries grant program has contributed to the advancement of science and health, supporting capacity-building projects in developing countries across the globe through training, education, infrastructure digitization and preservation of information.
As we come closer to celebrating our tenth anniversary, we have found it an appropriate time to take stock of our programs and activities, and to look ahead. With the constant introduction of new technologies in the field of information sciences, the role of libraries has changed, and we are currently developing a new program that reflects our commitment to building research capacity and encompasses this in its entirety: both in the library and beyond.
We are currently busy outlining this new and exciting direction for the Elsevier Foundation. As a result, we will not be issuing grant calls for 2015. Our new programs will be announced at the end of this year on our website and through our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch via email should you have any further questions.
