- PRESS RELEASE
Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, has launched the sixth grant application process for its competitive project funding initiative the National Priorities Research Program (NPRP).
Previously the Program has attracted some of the world's most capable experts and innovators to the region. Supporting original and competitively selected projects, 567 ventures from 160 collaborative institutions globally have received awards to date. These initiatives have helped advance scientific innovation nationally, and improved Qatar's position within the global academic community. The sixth cycle of NPRP grants will continue to bolster the nation's growing research culture.
To launch this round of submissions, QNRF will hold two public information sessions in Qatar on the 24th September and broadcast two webinars, scheduled for the convenience of international applicants based in different time zones. Hosted by a panel of QNRF experts, the presentations will outline the application process by detailing current policies and guidelines. A comprehensive question and answer session will also follow the meetings.
Online applications commenced today, with final proposals to be submitted by Tuesday 11th December, 2012. The timeframe for the research-based proposals must be from one to three years, and directly support QNRF's mandate to help boost the nation's transition to a knowledge-based economy.
