Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation Research Support Fund

Disclaimer: Kindly note that the application for the fund has been postponed until further notice

In today's world, where complex and growing problems necessitate innovative solutions, it is critical to enable and support scientific research, as well as to strengthen the link between scientific research's objectives and outputs on the one hand, and the development and technological priorities of various sectors on the other, which requires directing scientific research toward innovation. Investing in scientific research and innovation is an investment in the future of societies, inspiring ideas and initiatives, and it is a method to address not just the essential necessities of each society, but also to motivate efforts toward a better future.

At the Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation, we believe that scientific research and researchers play a critical role in sharing information, broadening perceptions, and developing practical answers to society's most pressing issues and demands. The long-term social impact of applied scientific research, particularly that which recognizes the importance of diversity in the research team, alignment with development priorities, and innovation direction, invites us all to participate in supporting scientific research, recognizing researchers, and stimulating more scientific, technological, and societal innovation.

Philosophy of the fund

In line with the vision of AHSF in encouraging scientific research and researchers, Abdul Hameed Shoman Scientific Research Support Fund was established in 1999 to support applied scientific research that has an added value and conducted by researchers in Jordan. The fund also aims to encourage scientific research contributions within Higher Education and Scientific Institutions as well as collaborative research between international and national research centers.

This funding went to 131 research projects from 22 Jordanian universities and institutions, resulting in 148 scientific papers being published in peer-reviewed journals in the fields of medical and health sciences, green technology and environmental sustainability, engineering sciences, food security and agricultural technology, economic growth and competitiveness, methods Education tools, basic sciences, culture, arts, humanities, and social sciences.

The fund aims to support research that uses a systematic analysis of society's problems, basic needs, and economic, social, educational, cultural, environmental, and health aspirations to bring scientific and technical institutions closer to the surrounding communities, contributes to comprehensive development strategies, and facilitates Jordanian society's communication with advanced societies.

The Abdul Hameed Shoman Fund also aims to assist researchers in gaining access to new areas of science and experience, as well as to highlight the role of research centers and universities as platforms for disseminating knowledge, stimulating innovation, and finding solutions to local challenges in order to ensure a sustainable and promising future.

The Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation is proud to present the first list of published research supported by the Abdul Hameed Shoman Fund to Support Scientific Research. From 2000 to 2021, the Fund provided more than 1.6 million Jordanian dinars in direct support, and also motivated our partners from academic and scientific institutions to provide about a quarter of a million Jordanian dinars to support scientific research in Jordan.

This support was directed to 131 research projects from 22 Jordanian universities and institutions, which resulted in the publication of 148 research published in various refereed journals, i.e. an average of 4 scientific papers published for every 3 supported and completed research, and a publication rate of 133.3% for completed research. The fields of scientific research published and funded by the Abdul Hameed Shoman Research Fund to support scientific research varied as follows: 31.76% in medical and health sciences, 25.0% in engineering sciences, 13.51% in agricultural sciences, 11.49% in basic sciences, and 9.46% in basic sciences. Environmental sciences, 5.41% in humanities and social sciences, and 3.38% in communications, information technology and digital economy.

Published research plays a major role in the promotion and dissemination of knowledge. Policies based on science and scientific research were and will continue to be an important factor in shaping the future of peoples and establishing economic and social orientations for the public and private sectors.
