Invitation to submit an Expression of Interest, Deadline May 15, 2022

The VREF invite you to submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) in writing a think piece on gender-informed mobility planning and policy: Status, barriers, ways forward.

The Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) programme on “Mobility and Access in African cities” (MAC) is currently providing opportunities for researchers at SSA universities to write short “think pieces” on specific themes that have strong relevance for achieving sustainable mobility and equitable access in African cities.

This time, VREF would like to commission a scholar who is based at a SSA university to write a think piece on the theme of “Gender-informed mobility planning, governance and policy in African cities: status, barriers, ways forward.” Through this invitation, VREF welcomes expressions of interest (EoI) for a commissioned work on this theme. See attached pdf for full information.

Deadline for submission of applications is 15 May 2022.
