Second Round NGP Grants

MIT Skoltech Next Generation Program; 2nd Round of NGP Grants

The second call for proposals for the Next Generation Program has yielded in 11 proposals of which eventually 4 have been selected for funding. The annual budget of each project will be up to 12.5 million rubles for the Skoltech portion and $130K (total costs) for the MIT one.

The Skoltech – MIT Joint Next Generation Program (NGP) covers the whole range of academic and institution development activities. That includes research, education, innovation and academic services towards establishing and promoting a mutually beneficial long-term bilateral collaboration between Skoltech and MIT, as well as further development of Skoltech work streams.
