In the same way that there is no national trigonometric table or periodic table, science does not belong to any nation. It is rather an asset of humanity and should be used to improve everyone’s life. The outreach of science achieves deeper levels with globalization, which has made the world feel like a small village and has helped the fast dissemination of science and technology.
According to Professor Manfred Horvat, an advisor to the EU involved in international cooperation, if Europe wants to become more competitive, it “needs to cooperate with increasingly innovative countries such as China and Brazil”. This means that while the work of researchers from emerging economies is being recognized worldwide, funding for international cooperation, including for emerging countries, is increasingly becoming available.
While having your research funded may determine your success, it is not always easy to find sources of funding. To help researchers in the search for project grants, we have made a list of more than 30 funding agencies that provide grants for international collaboration. If you are interested in learning more about funding from these organizations, we encourage you to check out their website and see the type of research projects that each organization funds.
