ENGINEERING, TECHNOLOGY, AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
Program: African Engineering Research Fund Award
Sponsor: Emerald Group Publishing
Next Deadline: 7/1/2012
The sponsor will provide a research grant of £2,500 for an African project in the field of engineering research. At least one member of the research team must be based in Africa.
Program: Grant-In-Aid Program
Sponsor: International Centre for Diffraction Data
Next Deadline: 7/31/2012
The International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) extends financial support to qualified investigators, in the form of grants-in-aid awarded on a competing proposal basis, for the preparation of reference X-ray powder diffraction data. Preferential consideration will be given to proposals for generation of high quality experimental powder diffraction patterns, based on new data for phases which are not now represented in the Powder Diffraction File (PDF), but which are likely to be of considerable interest to present and future PDF users. Special consideration will also be given to classes of substances of high current interest, including new types of materials which have significance in industrial and research applications.
Program: Educational Support Grant Program
Sponsor: International Embryo Transfer Society
Next Deadline: 7/1/2012
The purpose of this program is to stimulate development of educational materials to meet the educational mission of the IETS Foundation and to encourage use of electronic technologies to deliver educational information regarding the development, application and research in embryo-related technologies, including but not limited to, nuclear transfer, genetic enhancement of animals, embryo and gamete biology, and food safety and risk assessment of products arising from embryo biotechnology.
