Without being prescriptive it is expected that the successful applicant will develop research around themes such as:

  • The use of technological applications and innovations by governments to deliver more effective public services especially in the areas of social protection and health
  • To identify and examine how new technologies and innovations may be used to tackle global issues such as environmental sustainability and climate change
  • To explore barriers to uptake, identify the effects of new technologies and explore how promising technologies may lead to greater global benefits (reduce poverty, enhance inclusive growth) as opposed to leading to greater inequality within and across countries
