This program is intended to support the overarching goal of Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), which is to foster a research culture in Qatar. Specifically, the grants offered through the Junior Scientists Research Experience Program (JSREP) will: 1. Contribute in building human capital in Qatar through supporting junior scientists 2. Fund research that is aligned with Qatar National Research Strategy.
QNRF runs one JSREP cycle per year. The program will fund up to US$100,000 per project per year for a duration of up to three years.
Responsiveness to Challenges
Qatar is investing heavily in its human capital to build a knowledge-based society in order to achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030. The JSREP will help to build human capital in Qatar by supporting junior scientists to initiate or lead their own research. The program will also provide incentives for institutions to build the organizational infrastructure needed to support researchers, and will help to promote knowledge and technology transfer.
In addition to helping foster research that will directly benefit the junior scientists, this program will also provide benefits to Qatar by addressing its national priorities and contributing to the achievement of its noble vision.
