The Russian Science Foundation actively encourages international research
cooperation, assisting the best Russian researchers to participate in
collaborative research projects with researchers abroad based on the
principles of excellence, parity funding, credible independent peer-review and
mutual trust. Today we secured a diversified portfolio of bilateral
collaborations with 10 funders from Germany, France, Belgium, Austria,
Japan, India, Belarus, China and Taiwan. Depending on the partners, we fund
blue-sky, bottom-up research but also offer top-down, more targeted joint funding programs.
