Haiti – NOTICE UEH : Research support fund (2021-2022), Call for expressions of interest
The Office of the Vice-Rector for Research of the State University of Haiti (UEH) announces the launch of the 2021-2022 call for expressions of interest for the UEH Research Support Fund .
The vast majority of the activities of the Office of the Vice-Rector for Research are carried out through partnerships and university cooperation. And for good reason, the share of the University’s financial resources devoted to the research sector was decreasing over the years until the 2018-2019 academic year. In this context, the VRR, aware of the challenge of scientific research, created a number of mechanisms to support research and proposed to the University Council via the Research Council, a resolution on the Research Support Fund (FAR).
In accordance with this resolution of the University Council dated August 5, 2017, the UEH has set up a Research Support Fund (FAR) which pursues “the aim of ensuring an effective promotion of research at the UEH” (art. 1) on the basis of allocations funded by the Public Treasury (art. 2).
Thus, the Office of the Vice-Rector for Research, which has supported research projects for 4 years, intends to continue this activity for the 2021-2022 academic year. The aim is to allow the UEH to take its full place in the universe of national and international scientific production in the service of the country’s development.
