As an incentive to young students, teachers, graduates and creatives to research and further study for the sake of the development of the Macau’s Special Administrative Region’s development – in the strategic sectors of economy and diversification, heritage and identity, applied sciences, and History of Macau – the International Institute of Macau (IIM), with the support of the Macao Foundation (FM), has decided to enlarge the scope of the “Young Researcher Award”, being attributed since 2001.
The enlargement of the targeted areas is not only justified by the need of adaptation to the most recent social, economic and educational evolution, but also with the stimulation of the participation, of the new generations, towards the construction of a common future, in a time where the scope of intervention and opportunity horizon is strongly diversified and the educational system has much grown and expanded.
The targeted areas are the following, for the year of 2020:
► Social Sciences;
► Applied Sciences.
