Visiting Researcher Program, implemented by the Enterprise Incubator Foundation (EIF) with the support of PMI Science, will bring international scientists to Armenia.

Investment readiness program for women owned firms

Annoncement

 

The International Finance Corporation (IFC) in partnership with the Government of Japan is launching the second round of “Investment readiness program for women-owned firms” implemented through “Enterprise Incubator” Foundation and “Granatus Ventures” company.

R&D Ecosystem

 

 

Enterprise Incubator Foundation (EIF), with the support of PMI Science, is implementing extensive R&D ecosystem development programs since 2018. Support programs for the research institutes and universities of Armenia play an important role in the scientific progress in several contemporary fields including Mathematical modeling, Simulation modeling, Technology aided design of systems and experiments, Heating and heat transfer technologies, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Prototyping, Material Science, Analytical Chemistry, Biomaterials (bioplastic, bio-ceramic, biopolymers), Aerosol Science, Toxicology, Applied and Experimental Physics, Applied mathematics, Machine learning and AI. 

The Faculty Research Funding Program and PhD Support Program are the flagship initiatives, which create a valuable community of scientists and shape science in Armenia. Since the first announcement, there are already over 160 scientists representing 20 different research institutions and universities who benefited from the programs.

 

In the frame of the programs, the winning research teams and PhD students receive financial support as well as get an opportunity to participate in exclusive community events, and closely work with local and international mentors and experts in the field.
