On 28 August 2003, South Africa signed an agreement on cooperation in science and technology with Japan, followed two years later by a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). The implementation of the NRF/JSPS MoU has led to annual cycles of joint calls between the two countries. Following 12 successful joint calls for proposals, between 2005 and 2017, the NRF is pleased to announce the 13th call and herewith invite all interested parties to submit their applications, by a date no later than that indicated.
All South African researchers interested to apply under this call must submit their applications through an online application process to the NRF at https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za. A detailed call document is attached.
Call opens: 4 July 2018
Call closes: 5 September 2018
Please note that applications submitted outside the NRF Submission system will not be accepted.
