In 2005 the Republic of South Africa and the Russian Federation signed a memorandum of agreement that led to South Africa becoming an associate member of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). The main objectives of the collaboration is to provide the South African research community with access to world-class facilities, and research and networking opportunities with the JINR scientific community.
As part of this agreement, travel grants are awarded to South Africa-based researchers (i.e. emerging and established) travelling to JINR labs, or requesting funding to host JINR research experts for a short period (up to three weeks) in South Africa in order to enrich local expertise in their field.
This call is aimed at providing grants to researchers and postgraduate students to apply for support in the following two categories:
1. Travel grants for approved JINR-focussed projects: Postgraduate Students
2. Travel grants for Researchers
