The data registered in the INSF Website
In order to send proposals online and yet for later check of the proposal status, researchers need to sign up on the website. When signing up, only some basic personal information like name and email address is required and will be stored in the foundation's data bank. While completing proposal form online, detailed information about the researcher (who presents the proposal) and the proposal will be registered and saved. This data is accessible by internal experts of the foundation and also by the judges whom the foundation selects from among prominent researchers inside or outside the country. According to the mutual agreement between the foundation and the network credit facilities, general information about the approved projects such as title, administrator, execution place, etc will be registered in the data bank of the network for credit facilities, as well. Therefore, these data will be accessible for other organizations which are the members of the network.
The foundation's website may use Cookie technology to store or retrieve the information of the site itself on your computer.
