[Call For Proposal] Young People and Development Rapid Research (YPD-RR) – The Australia-Indonesia Centre

The scheme will fund Young People and Development Rapid Research (YPD-RR) projects up to AUD 30,000 each. Total funding available is maximum AUD 300,000. YPD-RR projects will have a four-month duration.

The YPD-RR scheme responds to the agenda, with a specific focus on the province of South Sulawesi. Grants supported by the scheme are to help identify the skills gaps and development needs of young people in the province and across a number of sectors. It will provide analysis on jobs, education opportunities and skills gaps and requirements that will help determine how the South Sulawesi workforce (including women, people with disabilities and marginalised groups) can be better supported to meet industry needs.

Each YPD-RR project proposal will focus on an analysis of education opportunities (vocational education and training and higher education) or skills gaps, including industry needs in one sector chosen from below:

  • Health and wellbeing – e.g. skills needs of frontline health workers, health systems
  • Commodities – e.g. seaweed farming
  • Transport – airport, seaport and public transport
  • Logistics and supply chain
  • Tourism
  • Digital economy
