"This year, we've identified some very compelling new opportunities to support big data, research capacity building, transparency and evidence-based medicine in the developing world. Our New Scholars grants focus on boosting team science diversity and innovation, targeting STEM inclusion in community colleges and a unique tropical health partnership between Portuguese speaking women scientists in Africa and their Portuguese counterparts. We are excited to able to add these excellent projects to the Foundation's record of support for advancing science and health in new and innovative ways."

Innovative Libraries

The Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries program awards grants to libraries for innovation in improving access and use of scientific, technical and medical information. The 2013 library grant recipients address real developing world issues through the use of STM information resources and include:

Joy Paulson, Director, TEEAL Project and International Projects Librarian, Cornell University, remarked, "We are very excited to receive support from the Elsevier Foundation for the development and implementation of our author capacity building program. Building on the access to Research4Life and TEEAL and the e-resources training connected to them, this new program will focus on developing the skills to enable young faculty in Ethiopia, Nigeria and Malawi to publish the results of their research in international journals. In the long run, this will ensure that the results of African agricultural research are disseminated more widely."
