ActivitiesEdit

"The RFBR provides on a competitive basis financial support to individual scientists and research teams, enabling them to select research topics independently, to set up academic teams, and to concentrate resources on the most promising research projects." [3]

The Russian Foundation for Basic Research financially sponsors conferences and research,[4][5][6] provides collective bargaining in negotiating access to research databases for Russian research institutions,[7] and co-hosts the Scopus Awards with Elsevier for Russian scientists who score high in Elsevier's academic productivity and citation metrics and are strongly involved in RFBR’s programs and grants.[8]

RFBR research grants are usually only available to Russian researchers and their international collaborators.[9][better source needed]

International collaborationEdit

RFBR collaborates with other research foundations around the world, including CRDF Global,[10] the National Science Foundation[11] and National Institutes of Health[12][13] in the United States, the French National Center for Scientific Research,[14] the German Research Foundation[15][16][a] the Royal Society of the United Kingdom,[18][19] the Iran National Science Foundation,[20] the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology,[21][22][23] the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of the Republic of Cuba,[24] the Academy of Finland,[25] the Research Council of Norway,[26] and the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia.[27]
