TORONTO, ON – FCV Interactive is excited to partner with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The agency will redesign the Federal Crown corporation’s website and develop new communications platforms for its Think Tank Initiative – recently launching the program’s blog as a responsive, mobile-optimized site to help increase access to online learning. After successfully competing in two public procurements, the wins highlight FCV’s capability with clients in all levels of Government across the country from coast to coast.
“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to help IDRC tell their story to the global community,” says Johann Starke, FCV’s President & CEO. “This engagement allows us to apply our expertise in digital strategy, user experience, design and technology with an institution dedicated to helping the world’s developing regions.”
Launched in 2008, IDRC’s Think Tank Initiative (TTI) strengthens the capacity and sustainability of independent policy research institutions. TTI currently provides core, non-earmarked funding to 43 think tanks in 20 countries. This support allows institutions to attract, retain and build local talent, develop independent research programs, and invest in public outreach to ensure that research results inform and influence national and regional policy debates.
