Although the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 resulted in review meetings mostly taking in remote mode, the Russian Science Foundation is committed to ensure that review and funding activities continue as smoothly as possible. In line with its initial plans, the RSF completed review of interim scientific reports submitted by the project investigators and approved 2022 funding for 896 research projects, including those funded under the framework of Presidential research funding program.

In accordance with the grant agreements, the grant recipients submitted to the Foundation scientific and financial reports on the progress of their projects. The reporting materials were reviewed by external referees and were discussed by the relevant scientific panels of two RSF Expert Councils.

“As promised, due to pandemic the referees used the most individual and flexible approach when evaluating the results of the projects, the adjustment of research plans as well as the reasons for each failure to fulfill separate research works and to meet publication requirements. Based on the reviews completed, the expert councils recommended to continue funding for 896 projects, 2 projects were recommended for termination due to their poor scientific progress. According to the rules of the Russian Science Foundation, project investigators of the projects that were terminated will be banned for further proposal submissions to the RSF for the period of three years, they can neither review proposals submitted to the RSF. The Foundation's Expert Council has also identified a few most influential works. It should be noted that some project requirements, for example, related to publication of research results, were even overmet by the RSF grant holders”, Andrey Blinov, RSF Deputy Director General commented the outcome.

The research results of the grant holders can be found by the "Project Finder" tool.

The Russian Science Foundation extends its best wishes for a successful outcome of all investigators and participants of the projects supported!
