Recently, the National Natural Science Foundation published a list of grants for collaborative research projects with the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) in the field of geosciences. Research fellow Liu Jing of the IGCEA and Professor Alastair Sloan of the University of Cape Town in South Africa jointly proposed an application for a “Comparative Study on the Evolution of Continental Plateau Boundary Topography,” which was successful in receiving funding to the amount of RMB 1.99 million. The execution period of the three-year project is from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2020.

In addition, the National Natural Science Fund committee published a list of cooperative research projects with the Israel Science Foundation (ISF) in mathematics, physics, chemistry, earth science, nanotechnology, computer science, and other six areas. Research fellow Zhang Huiping from the IGCEA and Dr. Amit Mushkin from the Geological Survey of Israel jointly submitted an application to study “The Evolution Process, Sliding Speed, and Kinetic Significance of the Pliocene–Pleistocene Dead Sea and Aljin fracture,” which received funding to the amount of RMB 1.78 million. The execution period of the three-year project is from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2020.
