Every year, the Professional Committee manages a fund for innovative projects, undertaken by IFLA’s Professional Units. 

The Professional Committee is looking for projects that result in new products and services, or new knowledge.  The projects and outputs should be connected to the draft IFLA Strategic Plan and Key Initiatives for 2016 (see the draft). They should also relate to one of the objectives in your Action Plan.

The call is announced in October.  The deadline for applications for the first round of funding is 15th November 2015, with the outcome known after the Professional Committee meets in December. 

For full details see the call for proposals for funding in 2016.

The call documentation includes details of what is eligible, and an application form, which should be completed online. The deadline for submitting an application is 15 November 2015. All applications should have the approval of the Standing Committee of the relevant Section and should be discussed with the relevant Division Chair.
