Overview
A grant to the Behavioral Ideas Lab, Inc. (ideas42) will allow it to apply a behavioral science framework to cybersecurity policy and examine behavioral challenges in cybersecurity at the levels of the end-users, IT administrators and organizations and in the policy environment. It will also assess implications for behaviorally informed solutions to cybersecurity policy challenges and publish a 50-60 page white paper that fills this knowledge gap. Ideas42 will work jointly with an existing grantee, New America, which will bring considerable cybersecurity expertise to the project.

Grants to this Grantee
for the design of a behavioral insights research project to improve civic monitoring platforms  
The Behavioral Ideas Lab, Inc. (ideas42) is a research organization and network of behavioral scientists that partners with governments, foundations, and civil society organizations to address social problems with behavioral insights. In this project, they will identify the trade-offs of potential models for a research collaborative to study the application of behavioral insights to increase the responsiveness of public officials to reports from civic monitoring platforms.
for behavioral diagnoses and testing of new interventions in reproductive health programs  
This grant will enable Behavioral Ideas Lab (ideas42) to expand the application and impact of a behavioral economics (BE) approach within the family planning and reproductive health (FPRH) sector. Working with existing partners, ideas42 will expand research to design and test a BE approach with underserved groups, scale successful interventions, and strengthen the capacity of FPRH practitioners to integrate behavioral science into their work. Through these activities, ideas42 aims to diffuse their behavioral diagnosis and design methodology, expand the evidence base for behavioral science interventions, and demonstrate the value of a BE approach within the sector.
