Some 3,000 research proposals were submitted for these competitions this year.

The Presidential research funding program was introduced by the Russian Science Foundation in 2017 on behalf of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. Its main tasks are to provide a long-term support for the projects of leading researchers at their early career stage and to create career paths for promising young researchers so that they can build their own independent research teams and pursue their best ideas at the frontiers of knowledge. During the implementation of the program, the RSF has funded more than 5 000 projects.
