The dialogue began with a discussion of grant funding for young scientists:
– The frequency of the competition for research projects has been changed. Now grants will be allocated annually, but at the same time the previous three-year term of the project will remain;
– The composition of the National Scientific Staff was resumed; the system of selection of research projects was resumed and changed, which is based on the open and transparent work of the National Scientific Staff.
– Improved project financing. The scientific work will pass the economic expertise on the validity of prices and goals.
In addition, the Ministry is developing a system for anti-plagiarism of theses and dissertations, which will check them not only on the basis of Kazakhstan, but also around the world.
To support young scientists this year, a program will also be implemented on the issue of apartments in the framework of cooperation with the Construction Companies. Last year, 120 scientists received housing.
