Financing opportunity

On February 8, 2017, the Government of Peru signed a Loan Agreement for Loan 8682-PE with the World Bank (WB) to finance the Project “Improvement and expansion of services of the National System of Science, Technology and Technological Innovation (SINACYT)”, in order to contribute to the economic and competitive diversification of Peru, which will help to reduce the vulnerability of the productive apparatus and achieve sustainable development based on knowledge.

The National Fund for Scientific, Technological and Innovation Development – FONDECYT is the Project Executing Unit and one of its components aims to strengthen the applied research capacity through training and attracting human capital, improvement of infrastructure, and R&D project financing.

This call is aimed at increasing human capital for science, technology and innovation through financing the incorporation of researchers with a doctor degree and the research project development, in order to generate impact on the creation, strengthening or consolidation of lines of research in Peruvian entities.

For the proposal presentation, the Peruvian entities must present the researcher(s) to incorporate, the internal research team, and the research project.
