Those returned began to develop science education and research, as happened in Japan and Korea, gradually leading to the next phase of ‘interaction’ stage.

We do not have the manpower to do this for every proposal. The properties ofthe pisha sandstone modified by thermal treatment and mechanical milling were investigated. For the broad spectrum of basic science researchers, especially for those outside prominent institutions across the country, NSFC is the main source of support, because provincial governments are mainly supporting applied research. Yang: Basic research is the core of science and the source of new technology and industry, providing the support and guidance to long-term development of S&T-based society. In reality, writing grant proposal is also an opportunity for thinking and planning research, and for incubating innovative ideas.

A water permeability test was carried out to find out the permeation characteristics of Pisha sandstone-based mortar.

Yang: The grant review system of NSFC is continuously undergoing improvement and adjustment.

The aim of this program is to produce a new alkali activated building, materials by using PS, and study the effect of alkaline type and the, fineness of PS at different curing conditions on the geopolymerisation, of PS.

The results show that the mechanical property and pore structure of the Pisha sandstone geopolymeric materials will be significantly influenced by fly ash content and curing age. © 2016, Editorial Department of Journal of Building Materials.

I just came from a review session in life sciences, in which one-third of the reviewers were experts from abroad and many reviewers are anonymous, with their identity represented by a number. Over the past few years, NSFC has greatly increased the amount given to individual investigator-initiated grants from 30–400 thousands to the current average of 800 thousands over four years. Yang: This will depend on the rate of growth and accumulation of talents within China. NSR: What kinds of misconducts that have been found in NSFC proposals? NSR: You once commented that NSFC has the most fair system of funding and the most transparent and trustworthy procedure for review in China. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide, This PDF is available to Subscribers Only.

The use of research publications as the only measure in evaluating university faculty, many of which are shifting their main effort from teaching to research and entering competitive international research community, has resulted in some outrageous data fabrication.

The project is being led by Dr Junhua Sun from Nanjing University, who I have previously worked with as…

The new academic year started with confirmation of receiving funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China for a project titled ‘Researching the Effectiveness of Entrepreneurial Education in HEI’S: Measurement, mechanism and contextual factors’ (71974093).
