After that time no further submissions will be accepted and a two week vetting period will begin when proposals will be available to the applicant’s RO for the purpose of vetting to ensure compliance with QNRF's published NPRP terms and conditions of submission. During the vetting period, which will end at noon, Doha time, on Tuesday 20 December, the RO will have the opportunity to correct some aspects of the proposal before final submission to QNRF for inclusion in the next stage of the evaluation process.

Applicants, who must submit their proposals through QNRF's Online Submission System, are advised that they may experience a delay in response times as the deadline approaches.

The NPRP, QNRF's flagship funding Program and the primary means by which QNRF addresses the country's key national needs through research, is intended to support the overarching goal of QNRF, which is to foster a research culture in Qatar.
