APPLICATION FORM GUIDELINES
These proposal application guidelines are for the Tech Coalition Safe Online Fund 2021 Open Call for Proposals focused on funding research to better understand and fight online child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA). The objective is to advance the understanding of experiences and patterns of online CSEA for child and adolescent victims as well as offenders and would be offenders, and learn from effective efforts (behavioural, technological, educational) to prevent, deter and eradicate it. We are interested in innovative research that produces actionable insights that can impact product and policy development, with a priority given to research that can help inform the technology industry's approach to combating online CSEA.
The online application serves to collect all available information required for the proposal to be considered for funding by the Tech Coalition Safe Online Research Fund. All submissions must be made in English. Submissions to this Request for Proposals (RfP) will be reviewed by technical experts at End Violence as well as an Advisory Group of external experts, as applicable. Please note that your organisation may be requested to provide more details before funding decisions are final.
