PEP publicizes news and events from the development research community that may be of interest to its members.
The Global Development Network (GDN) is seeking to induct up to 10 research professionals from African, Caribbean and Pacific countries for a one-year Fellowship under the third cycle of the European Investment Bank-GDN program in Applied Development Finance.
The purpose of the program is to provide a select group of highly qualified and motivated young researchers a practical opportunity to hone their impact assessment skills, by working on real-world projects in private sector development funded by one of the world’s leading financial institutions, under the mentorship of top international experts.
Successful applicants will be inducted into the program as Candidate Fellows. Following a capacity-building workshop in September 2019 at the EIB headquarters in Luxembourg, Candidate Fellows will carry out 'deep dive' studies into the results and impacts of selected projects, funded under the EIB’s Impact Financing Envelope.
Upon completion of all program requirements, the Candidate Fellows will be certified as EIB-GDN Fellows in Applied Development Finance, and will become part of a knowledge network in evaluation and development finance.
