Tools for Science Programme
The Tools for Science programme offers maintenance grants for institutions to refurbish, re-operationalize and maintain key equipment which can be of broader use to the scientific community in KP.
The programme aims to develop 1) a network of well-lubricated and operational equipment that are widely available to scientists in all corners of KP and beyond and 2) a community of users around each high-tech facility through year-round trainings, workshops and social events.
What is included?
Examples of equipment include but are not restricted to:
High performance liquid chromatography instruments
The grant will cover anything to operationalise and better maintain a high-tech facility. This can include maintenance and repair costs, software upgrades and salary for the specialist technician.
This will be in return for KP-wide access to existing sophisticated and expensive lab equipment in KP.
