Individual young researchers and heads of research units in 81 science and technology-lagging countries are invited to submit their research proposals in the areas of basic biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics.
The programme, which is supported by funds from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) allows for the purchase of laboratory equipment, consumable supplies and scientific literature.
New for 2013:
- Successful individual young researchers will have the opportunity to attend an international conference of their choice. Young researchers or students attached to successful research units will also be offered this opportunity.
- Funds are available to support the publication of research results in open access journals.
- Research units will be given the option to support an MSc student as part of the project.
- Also thanks to the support of Sida, an additional call – for Research Consortia in S&T-lagging countries – will be announced soon.
