IFS Contributes to a Knowledge-based Economy in Pakistan

During 2019, our blog posts will primarily feature a range of countries in which IFS has awarded grants to early-career scientists, drawing on responses to a 15-item survey with mostly open-ended questions that we are sending to former and present grantees in selected countries, as an element of this year’s process culminating in our new 2021-2030 strategy. This month we highlight Pakistan, where 105 grants (30 to women and 75 to men) have been awarded by IFS since it was founded in 1974.
