The key areas lie in marine environment, traditional Chinese medicine, new materials, management science, information science, life science, etc. The call-for-proposal for the next year comes out during the fourth quarter and the deadline for proposal submission is Jan. 15 the following year. About 15 projects will finally get funded after separate evaluations and final joint review.

The result of the final review will be published during the fourth quarter of this year, simultaneously announced in the media by NSFC and RGC.
