The “Grand Challenges India: Catalyzing Equitable Artificial Intelligence (AI) Use to Improve Global Health” initiative aims to transform healthcare globally through AI, focusing on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). It stresses the importance of locally driven AI solutions to enhance the health and well-being of women, children, and vulnerable communities in these regions. The initiative seeks to ensure safe, equitable, transparent, and reliable AI use, with a high level of accountability. It encourages the collaboration of researchers, scientists, and policymakers to leverage AI’s full potential for sustainable and impactful health improvements.
The purpose of this call is to seek innovative approaches to the use of LLMs to advance health in India and across the globe. Given the numerous open and non-open-source AI tools, we encourage/expect the applicant to select the tool most appropriate to their use case and context.
Eligibility for this call for proposals is open to researchers, implementers, governments, and technical partners who have demonstrated capability in solving specific challenges in their countries and regions through Large Language Models (LLMs).
Actions must take place in India.
The funding level is a grant of up to USD $100,000 for each project, provided to the organization, with a term of up to 12 months. The project needs to be led by investigators in India. Global partners may be included, but proposals must demonstrate at least 80% of the funding is going to an organization within the Country. Application budgets should be commensurate with the scope of work proposed.
The application process opens on November 8, 2023, and closes on December 22, 2023. Applicants must apply through the corresponding Grand Challenges portal based on their geographic location. Detailed information and requirements for the application can be found on the respective Grand Challenges partner websites. Applicants are encouraged to consult the specific subsections referencing the geography of interest on these sites to ensure their proposal fits the RFP requirements.
