In order to promote the further openness of SKLGP, and to boost development, cooperation and exchanges, the laboratory established an open research fund aiming to support the research projects which may make theoretical and technological innovations in the field of geohazard prevention and geoenvironment protection. The total sum of the open fund is not less than 30% of the open operating fee for each year. The open research fund is annually declared and selected, and grants 10-15 items each year with an average funding of RMB 50,000-100,000.
The fund and special projects are open to anyone who wants to apply fro them. The academic committee conducts its evaluation in accordance with the principles of openness, fairness and impartiality, then selects the best application to fund. Finally, the fund would be approved and organized by the lab director. The laboratory welcomes and encourages outstanding scholars both at home and abroad to declare the open fund and special projects.
