The Russian Medical Academy of Continuing Professional Education announced plans to establish its own grant fund to support scientific work. The project is planned to be financed from income from commercial activities.
The Russian Medical Academy of Continuing Professional Education (RMANPO) will create its own fund to support the scientific and educational activities of the academy. Grants will be available for research projects, internships, training, publishing and educational activities, as well as publications. The fund will be formed from income from scientific and practical events, other commercial projects, as well as contributions and donations from third parties, the academy told MV.
The planned annual volume of financing, according to preliminary estimates, will be 5-10 million rubles. “Much depends on the success of congress and exhibition activities. Grants are intended, among other things, for research work and payment for trips of residents and graduate students,” explained the RMANPO Vice-Rector for Economics and Development Arkady Goldberg.
Federal budget expenditures on applied research in the healthcare sector in 2020-2021 were the highest in the last ten years, MV wrote. In 2020, in the overall structure of allocations to civil science, the share of medical research was 9.6%. In money terms this is 33.25 billion rubles.
