Joint Research Projects should combine the complementary expertise of the project partners; the project parts should be closely integrated so that one part could not be carried out without the other and there should be substantial scientific input from both sides.

Project applications must be submitted in parallel to RSF (Russian team) and to NSFC (Chinese team) in accordance with each agency’s application guidelines.

Project review will be carried out by the parties independently. Funding will be awarded for the proposals recommended for funding by the experts from both countries.

The size of one RSF grant is from 4 to 7 million roubles per project per year, these research projects are planned for the implementation during 2024-2026.

Proposals can be submitted until 24 April with results announced in October 2022.

Detailed information about the call and the requirements for the participants are presented in the "Funding" section.

Since 2021, 97 joint projects have been funded under the RSF-NSFC cooperation.

The National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) is the largest basic research funder in China. In 2018, NSFC granted 44,504 awards hosted by over 1500 research institutions, and most of these awards went to individuals or groups of investigators.
