Elsevier Foundation’s Grant Schemes Boost Research in Developing Countries
The Elsevier Foundation has announced the 2013 grant recipients for the Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries and New Scholars award programs. The grants total $700,000 to be distributed to 10 institutions around the world in addition to 5 ongoing multiyear grants and the Nurse Faculty program. Developing countries often suffer from a lack of access to the knowledge resources necessary for today’s medical practices. Also a major issue in emerging economies is the social and economic support for women who aspire to professional careers while nurturing families.
