With the successful launch of The Information Society Innovation Fund (ISIF),
many developing economies in the Asia Pacific region are expecting to benefit
from grants funding later in 2008. ISIF has been widely praised for helping ICT
development projects in Asia Pacific developing economies. This will now be
further enhanced with the ability to apply online for ISIF grants.
APNIC'S Paul Wilson is "pleased with the positive response we have received
from the community so far and are happy to notify potential applicants that
grant applications may now be lodged directly on our website using an online
form. Most importantly, we look forward to seeing the grants come to fruition."
ISIF is a joint initiative between the Canadian International Development
Research Centre (IDRC), the Internet Society (ISOC), and the Asia Pacific
Network Information Centre (APNIC), aimed at stimulating creative solutions to
ICT development needs in the Asia Pacific region.
