** Funding opportunity to tackle online child sexual exploitation & abuse: Tech Coalition Safe Online Research Fund

End Violence and the Technology Coalition have launched the Tech Coalition Safe Online Research Fund to expand knowledge of online child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA) and to develop actionable insights for preventing it.

From now until 11 April 2021, the Request for Proposals is open, seeking innovative research into this topic with priority given to research that can inform the technology industry’s approach to combating online CSEA. Winning proposals will be awarded grants from $20,000 to $250,000. Learn more and apply here: http://bit.ly/TC_SafeOnline_ResearchFund.

This collaboration is part of Technology Coalition’s Project Protect, which seeks to prevent and eradicate online CSEA through technology innovation, collective action, research, knowledge sharing, and increased accountability. This fund is an essential part of that process, supporting actionable research that will lead to real, lasting change for children’s digital safety. 

Please share with your networks!
