UNESCO is calling for expressions of interest from individuals and organizations to contribute a background paper to inform the research of the 2023 GEM Report on technology.
Each year, around 30 background papers are externally commissioned to fill in research gaps in the GEM Report. Papers cover a wide range of topics, contributing to the understanding of the report themes. Expressions of interest may be submitted in one or more of the following 16 areas described on the webpage about the call. The papers are released when the report is launched each year.
The deadline for submissions for the 2023 GEM Report is 20 January, 2022 with notifications of outcomes given on 21 February, 2022. Commissioning will take place in March 2022 and papers commissioned are expected to be completed by October 2022.
