Become an anchor donor
As the core of our activity is research, we currently spend >95% of our income on research. There are unfortunately, no short cuts in research and long-term investment is necessary for new ideas to produce significant output. Many of our research programmes need at least 5 years of continued funding and renewed funding to support the next stage in the research process.
In all areas, we apply for research grants from the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Technology, where there is a systematic process for evaluating, reviewing and ensuring the highest standard of research. In addition, we have engaged independent international experts in each research field to review our plans and to monitor research programmes.
