National Research Foundation of Ukraine
National Research Foundation of Ukraine (NRFU) is the largest funding body in Ukraine that supports scientific activities of all researchers, independent of their affiliations. This support is provided in a form of research grants, awarded on the basis of the independent peer review.
NRFU is governed by two collegial bodies - Scientific Board and Supervisory Board. According to the Ukrainian law, Scientific Committee of the National Council of Ukraine on Science and Technology acts as the Supervisory Board of NRFU, and elects the Scientific Board that is directly managing the NRFU policies.
At the moment, NRFU is undergoing an organizational phase and is expected to become operational in the second half of 2019.
This web site is an effort by the NRFU Supervisory Board, aimed at facilitating contacts between NRFU and potential international reviewers.
Up to now, it has been typical for the Ukrainian practice of evaluating research proposals that only internal (Ukrainian) reviewers were involved. NRFU intends to use the best practices of involving international experts in the evaluation procedures, and needs to build up a database of International Referees from scratch. After the start of NRFU operation, there will be very little time left in 2019 to organize the call for projects and process the applications. Thus, the Supervisory Board would like to start the process of forming the pool of potential Referees in advance.
NRFU Supervisory Board seeks help of the international scientific community in reviewing the projects submitted to the National Research Foundation of Ukraine. We invite all international scientists willing to act as potential Referees for NRFU to register by filling the online form on this site.
