Recently, the National Natural Science Foundation published a list of grants for collaborative research projects with the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (NRF) in a wide range of fields. After public solicitation, review by both sides, and negotiation between both agencies, two projects proposed by the Institute of Geology received funding: “Active folds and strong earthquakes in Tianshan and the Greater Caucasus Region”, which was jointly applied for by Researcher Chen Jie from our institute and Professor Evgenii Rogozhin from the Institute of Geophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, and “Study of the crustal stress state in southwest China and the identification of strong earthquake preparationarea using integrated tectonic methods”, which was jointly applied for by engineer Guo Yanshuang and Professor Yuri Rebetsky from the Institute of Geophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences. The amount of funding is 150 thousand RMB for each project. The projects will run for three years (January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021).

In addition, the National Natural Science Fund committee published the list of cooperative research projects with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in a wide range of fields. Associate Research Fellow Han Fei from our institute and Professor Jean-Jacques Bahain from the Department of Prehistory, National Museum of Natural History, France, jointly applied for a grant entitled “Chronological study of the strata of early human archaeological sites in the Exi-Sanxia region of China”, which was awarded 150 thousand RMB of funding. The project will run for three years (January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021).
