D-Jil – A successful call for applications

January 18, 2019

The second call for applications for D-Jil has resulted in 250 applications being submitted, all relating to projects for producing original digital content aimed at young people in the Arab world.

CFI and its partners will scrupulously examine every single application received. The selection criteria will focus on the project's relevance to the expectations of young people living in Southern Mediterranean countries, and on its methodology, its feasibility and its innovativeness. The digital dimension will form a decisive factor.

After the applications have been examined, 30 projects will be short-listed. The owners of the selected projects will be told during the second half of February 2019.

Then, two representatives of each of the 30 short-listed projects will take part in the next stage of the selection process, which will consist of two hackathons aimed at further refining their proposals.

The project teams from North Africa will take part in a hackathon in Tunis (Tunisia) on 23 and 24 March 2019, while those from the Levant and Egypt will meet at a hackathon in Amman (Jordan) on 29 and 30 March 2019.

D-Jil is run by a consortium of partners with the following members: CFI (France), Fondation Samir Kassir (Lebanon), IREX Europe (France), FMAS (Morocco) et Leaders of Tomorrow (Jordan) and is co-financed by Union européenne.
