Dear Colleagues,

We would like to share with you two opportunities that might be of interest to students at your university.

First, applications are being accepted for the International Development Design Summit (IDDS) which will take place from July 1 to July 31, 2013 in Zambia.  IDDS is an intense, hands-on design experience that brings together people from all over the world and all walks of life to create technologies and enterprises that improve the lives of people living in poverty.  Applications are due on March 15, 2013 but will be accepted until March 29, 2013 for students who are citizens of Zambia, Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.  Please note - applications open to students and others as well.  Learn More>>

Second, the Global University Network for Innovation (GUNi) has opened a Call for Videos to be screened at the 6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education, to be held May 13 - 15, 2013 in Barcelona, Spain and featured on the GUNi website.  A synthesis of contributions will also be included in the forthcoming report, "Higher Education in the World 5."  Videos should be 2-3 minutes in length and must interpret the statement "The World We Imagine."  Submissions will be accepted until April 10, 2013. Learn More>>

Please encourage the students at your university to take advantage of these great opportunities!

Best Regards,

The Talloires Network Secretariat
