The French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, Transparency International, CFI and Liberté Living-Lab launch an Award to encourage innovative use of technology to improve governance in Francophone developing countries.
The Digital Award for Transparency honours individuals and civil society organisations who have developed innovative digital technology tools used to improve governance in Francophone developing countries. The award has three categories: Open Data, Citizen Engagement and Digital Anti-Corruption Tools.
In addition, Liberté Living-Lab will offer to one or several project submissions a three month residency in Paris.
Nominations for the award will be judged by a committee of experts from the digital sector and the anti-corruption movement. Project submissions from developing countries where innovative digital tools are used to tackle the pressing challenges that corruption poses for sustainable development are accepted.
Nominations are open to the public and can be submitted until 29 October 2017.
The winners will receive their awards at the Digital Award for Transparency ceremony in Paris on 8 December 2017.
