Increasing production of research in low- and lower-middleincome countries
It is a declared objective of IFS to improve production of relevant research by early-career scientists in low- and lower-middle-income countries. We aim to do this by: • Providing competitive research grants and capability-enhancing support; • IFS-funded researchers being supported with equipment procurement services; • Well-qualified IFS advisers and reviewers evaluating and feeding back to researchers; • IFS grantees receiving travel grants to increase international exposure, networking and collaboration; and • IFS alumni associations nurturing and supporting research with early-career scientists. IFS contributes to increased production of research by supporting the research of early-career scientists in low- and lower-middle-income countries, and by building capability to conduct research and engage with others in their research.
