Funding for Research & Development: COVID-19 & Beyond
17 June 2020
Despite the projected financial downturn and its attending consequences such as budget cuts, those in the biomedical and other scientific research communities are currently immune to the financial cuts being experienced by other sectors due to the COVID-19 crises; instead, they are now inundated with funds and pledges of funding. Their main challenge now is the race against time.
This UN in Ghana COVID-19 briefing note, the fifth in a series, focuses on the importance of funding for scientific research and technological innovation in this era of COVID 19 and argues that the Government of Ghana should aim to sustain the support for Science and R&D, which we have seen within this period, even after we overcome this COVID-19 crisis.
