Initiative goals

We facilitate the transfer of knowledge gained from research to the private sector by supporting partnership-building for multilateral cooperation. We have partnered with the councils to:

  • Strengthen their research and grant-making systems and procedures and scientific merit review.
  • Digitise their online grant management systems and databases of peer reviewers.
  • Integrate research excellence (particularly the knowledge and use of tools such as Research Quality Plus framework), research ethics, and emerging scientific practices in open and collaborative science (open access, open data and citizen science) in their work.
  • Facilitate their access to the Good Financial Grant Practice (GFGP) certification to improve grants management.
  • Facilitate peer-to-peer learning among Councils through staff exchanges and learning visits.
  • Support proposal development skills among the SGCs’ research grantees.
