Submit a proposal 


ID2020’s evaluation and selection processes will draw on the expertise of its Secretariat, Advisory Committees and Board of Directors.

  • Solicitation - ID2020 will intake and solicit proposals at varying degrees of comprehensiveness from both partners and non-partner organizations and individuals. For proposals meeting a certain threshold, we will aid in the advancement of the proposal.

  • Evaluation - the ID2020 Secretariat and advisors will evaluate proposals based on a set of transparent evaluation criteria derived from the Alliance’s goals and learning objectives.

  • Selection - ID2020’s Secretariat, Advisors and Board of Directors will ultimately select pilots for varying levels of monetary and non-monetary support following an assessment of feasibility, internal priorities and available resources.
