The National Priorities Research Program – Exceptional Proposals (NPRP-EP) provides an extra funding opportunity for proposals of singular scientific merit that require investment in excess of the normal level of NPRP funding. QNRF solicits scientists with exceptional ideas, approaches, procedures and models that may solve key issues of national, regional or global interest to apply for the NPRP-EP, as an additional funding opportunity within the NPRP program. These research projects will require funds of more than US$900k. The maximum budget for such proposals is US$5m with a project duration of up to five years. All proposals submitted will be peer-reviewed by qualified experts. Awards will be granted based on the final decision of QNRF’s Steering Committee. For more information on the policies and guidelines please review the NPRP-EP RFP.
