Small Grant Scheme for female scientists in technical sciences (SGS) – National Centre for Research and Development (PL)

The measure is a part of the programme Applied Research, implemented under the Norwegian Financial Mechanism established under the priority sector Innovation, Research, Education and Competitiveness, which aims at enhancing the performance of Polish applied research, and was proposed in response to the underrepresentation of female researchers, both in terms of their number and their professional role in technical sciences. The objective of the measure was to support research projects led by female researchers in technical sciences. Therefore, the aims of SGS are twofold: development of scientific research in Poland and strengthening the scientific careers of female scientists involved in the programme, by creating the conditions allowing them to progress in their scientific careers.
