The EHA initiative is driven by the shared objective of enhancing humanitarian action and outcomes. Consequently, the initiative’s second work stream, “Implementation and Testing”, is dedicated to translating research projects from Switzerland’s two Federal Institutes of Technology (EPFL and ETH Zurich) into actionable solutions that address humanitarian needs. Eligible research projects demonstrating promise and a commitment to testing their outcomes within the ICRC’s operational context can apply to this stream. Responsibility for applying to the piloting and implementation stream rests with the ICRC project sponsor. Given that this initiative is currently in a pilot phase, the ICRC‘s EHA coordination team will guide applicants throughout the application process and equip them with the necessary toolkit to complete their submissions.

For further insights into this work stream and any inquiries regarding the application process for its grant, we encourage you to reach out directly to the ICRC coordination team members. They will be pleased to assist and address any questions you may have.
