MECS is accepting proposals to conduct rapid (short-term), qualitative research of how people living in urban areas of Vietnam, Philippines, Laos and Indonesia learn to cook.
The aim of this research is an exploration of how people living in urban areas of ASEAN countries learn to cook. Time spent investigating day-to-day cooking practices, their cooking techniques, and the networks (both human and digital) that people learning to cook engage with will help us to understand more clearly what cooking behaviours (diversity, innovation (e.g. adopting innovative food products), implications on labour and time burden, etc.) look like.
Please note the following important information:
- The research is expected to commence no later than 15 October 2021. All contracting will be completed prior to 1 October. All deliverables must be completed and delivered no later than 15 January 2022. These dates are non-negotiable.
- Payment is contingent on successful completion of all deliverables.
- The closing date is 23:59 GMT on 22 September 2021. Proposals received after this timestamp will not be accepted.
- The quality of proposals received will determine which countries are chosen from those listed.
