Inter-Disciplinary Research Groups & Classic Literature Study Groups

To synergize inter-disciplinary research endeavors in the local academic community, funding is made available to academic research groups with unique perspectives and originality. To encourage in-depth study of classic literature/publications, the RIHSS also subsidizes a program to support the Classic Literature Study Groups. The funding is provided to support the study groups that focus on classic literature and meet on a regular basis. A rigorous review process has been set to ensure academic merit and standards. The review is carried out in two stages, first by two external referees and then by a review panel of experts in the RIHSS. The referees and the panel members are chosen for their expertise in relevant disciplines and current research areas. The applications are assessed according to criteria such as track records of the applicants, the quality of scientific content, and budget plan of the proposal.
