How does the CRP achieve its objectives?
- Fellowships: CRP funds short-term research projects for individual scientists in other CRP member countries. These individual travel bursary awards strengthen the exchange of ideas and increase international mobility and co-operation. Some 76% of the fellowships result in long-term co-operation between the fellow and their host institutes, a major goal of the programme.
- Conferences: The CRP sponsors international conferences and workshops to help keep policy makers, industry, and the academic world informed of innovative research, scientific developments and opportunities.
