The EDB has announced a competition for financing digital solutions to combat coronavirus.

The Digital Initiatives Fund of the Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) has announced a competition for the best digital solutions to counter the spread and overcome the negative consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Eurasian space. 

Any company or expert from states can become a participant in the competition — members of the Bank (Republic of Armenia, Republic of Belarus, Republic of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Russian Federation, Republic of Tajikistan) with competencies in the field of digital transformation. The only requirement is indifference, the desire to be useful in this difficult period, the readiness to quickly and effectively implement the proposed solutions. 

Digital solutions (technology, innovation, mobile applications, etc.) can include projects in various sectors of the economy and areas of public life: healthcare, logistics, transport, financial technologies, telecommunications, education, holding cultural and public events, etc. 

It is important that solutions have a high degree of readiness, could be quickly implemented and carried the potential of scaling to the entire Eurasian space. A separate advantage in evaluating projects will be the presence of a cross-cutting, cross-industry nature of solutions and a focus on the development of integration processes. 

The winners of the competition will receive funding from the EDB Digital Initiatives Fund for the implementation of the proposed solutions. The Fund can also take part in financing or otherwise supporting the process of scaling up existing and implemented solutions in individual countries and (or) industries. 

Applications for participation in the competition are accepted until October 4. 

You can submit an application on the profile section of the EDB official website.
