The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), in collaboration with the Shridath Ramphal Centre of the University of the West Indies, is inviting researchers to submit research proposals (two-page abstracts) that propose use-cases for how blockchain based technological solutions can mitigate private sector development challenges in the Caribbean.
A maximum of four (4) proposals will be selected to receive a minimum of USD$1,000.00 and to work with a committee to develop each research paper over a period of three months.
The preliminary findings of the selected research proposals will be presented and validated at a date and venue to be determined by the UWI and Compete Caribbean.
In April 2020, the research papers will be finalized after which only high-quality papers will be published by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in partnership with the Shridath Ramphal Centre of The UWI (SRC).
