NRF International Research Grants

International Research Grants (IRG) aims to forge and maintain strategic and intellectual alliances between individuals, institutions and organisations in the science research communities nationally and internationally to support the international competitiveness of the country.

The NRF is pleased to announce its call for proposals between South African and Chinese researchers, and invite all local researchers wishing to participate to submit their proposals.

The NRF is pleased to announce its second call for joint research project proposals between South African and German researchers, and invite all local researchers wishing to participate to submit their proposals

The NRF will only release the grant after the Terms and Conditions have been signed and returned to the NRF.

A grant-holder must submit an annual progress report.

At the end of the research project, we will expect a final report about the outcomes of the research.

A free flow of ideas and information is vital to the process of scientific enquiry, and in turn, to our ability to address economic, environmental and social development issues both nationally and globally.

Science crosses international boundaries to provide strong, positive connections between individual scientists, institutions and nations.

Such exchanges contribute to the expansion of the global knowledge base to which we are linked.

International cooperation in creates tremendous potential for scientists from the previously disadvantaged communities and historically disadvantaged institutions (HDIs) to get involved in collaborative research programmes.

Researchers at HDIs can develop the research capacity within their institutions to assist in developing the necessary human resources to address the socio-economic needs of the country.

Deadline: 31st August and 18th September
