Research program

The Foundation conducts contests for receiving financial support of fundamental and applied research proposals in the following fields:

I. Economics

II. Physics (Energy)

III. Informational and computer technologies

In the field of economics, the Foundation conducts contests for writing monographs. Projects of practical importance and at the edge of economics and various sciences like sociology, law, history, geography are especially welcomed.

Within the program in economics the Foundation gives grants within the limit of 12 000 US dollars both to individual researchers and to small teams (2-4 persons).

In the field of Physics, the priority will be given to the the following lines of proposals:

  • Energy sources and methods of energy transformation;
  • Applied thermophysics;
  • Applied electrophysics;
  • Applications of nuclear energy.

Besides that, the Foundation supports some partial projects devoted to:

  • Mathematical modeling;
  • Numerical simulations and computational mathematics;
  • Study of algorithms and investigations of applications.

(the support is conditioned by their possible applications to the problems listed above).

Within the programs in physics, the foundation provides grants within the limit of 12 000 US dollars both to individual researchers and to small teams (2-4 persons).

Within the programs in informational and computer technologies, the foundation gives grants within the limit of 12 000 US dollars both to individual researchers and to small teams (2-4 persons).

Major Themes, Areas and Suggested Topics:

  • Methods, algorithms, software and hardware in signal/image processing (fundamental theoretical research and applications);
  • Bio- and geoinformatics;
  • Artificial Intelligent methods for signal/image analysis.

As a separate nomination in this field of research, the Human Capital Foundation considers applications from young scientists (not older 35 years), see young scientist.

Under informational and computer technologies, the Foundation considers proposals for writing monographs in the abovementioned research areas of size up to 40000 symbols. To make such a proposal, an applicant has to present a detailed plan of the monograph with description of chapters and of size up to 24000 symbols. see monographs.

Besides that, a separate nomination is devoted to projects at the edge of physics and informational technologies in the abovementioned research areas.
