Civil society organizations do not find enough time and resources to collect data, to carry out research or to accumulate additional knowledge in the field related to their activities, as they are mainly engaged in the implementation of programs. The next problem is that young researchers must clearly understand the needs and gaps of different areas while realizing their ideas to address research and applicable results. The program “Data for Accountable and Transparent Activities” (DATA) carried out policy analysis and research scholarship competition to accomplish the gaps.
The conduction of research based on datas and facts will allow civil society structures to collaborate with individual researchers to investigate the current essential problematic topics and create documents, which can be used later in different stages of project implementation.
In other words, the conduction of research makes collaboration between young researchers, students, and CSOs and strengthens the culture of reveal and explore through analysis.
After passing the cooperative discussion-elaboration of the DATA consortium and the researchers and after outlining the ideas of the research scholarships, the scholarship holders launch the stage of the implementation of their ideas with the following topics
- The realization of the right to education of the displaced children in the Republic of Armenia,
- Issues of Inclusive Education under COVID-19 Limitations,
- Support beneficiary CSOs in the current and future projects and operations related to the management of trash, to make awareness and knowledge-based decisions,
- Research and Policy Ethics for conducting sociological research
Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) in consortium with SOCIES Expert Centre NGO (Socies), Boon TV Foundation (Boon TV), Youth Cooperation Center of Dilijan NGO (YCCD) and Sose Women Issues NGO (Sose), hereinafter the “DATA partners”, is implementing the “Data for Accountable and Transparent Action” (DATA) program, co-created and supported by the United States Agency for International Development.
