The Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (Spider) is a resource center in Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D). We bring together actors from different parts of society to promote and improve the use of ICT for development.
Modes of Operation
This is done in a number of ways. Our four modes of operation are Projects, Research Networks and Capacity building.
Thematically, we have three focus areas: Transparency and Accountability, Education and Learning; and Health and Wellbeing.
Do you have a Master degree in Health informatics, ICT4D, Development, Public Health or something similiar? Have experience carrying out independent qualitative data analysis? Looking for an internship? This may be an opportunity for you.
The response to the open call for education projects was overwhelming. Spider received over 150 applications from 12 different countries in three continents. A high number of these proposals were high quality, and the reviewing took longer than anticipated.
The selection of concept notes regarding ICT4Health projects has been finalised. 11 concept notes has been selected and the proposing organisations will get the chance to develop their concepts into a full proposal before the final selection.
