Type 1: to Armenian researchers for conducting joint scientific activities with international collaborators funded by their national scientific organizations,
Type 2: to Armenian researchers for conducting joint scientific activities in the FAST priority areas (Biotechnology/Computer and Data Science/Advanced Materials /Microelectronics) with the collaborators from leading international research institutions,
Type 3: to international researchers coming to Armenia for the implementation of joint scientific activities with their Armenian collaborators.
The maximum size of each grant is USD 7,500.
Applications for the Grant Type 1 are accepted on a rolling basis until Summer 2019.
