If so, be explicit.Successful proposals • Build effective teams of researchers and knowledge users • Demonstrate gendered approaches to violence • Move beyond description into programs and interventions • Represent active and meaningful partnershipsProcess • Teams that successfully pass the LOI stage will be invited to submit full applications – They will be awarded $10K development funds • Full application instructions will be made available when LOI results are announcedQuestions about content?
