Kenyan science officials say they plan to set up a national research foundation to manage and disburse research grants.

The foundation would operate along the lines of the South African National Research Foundation (NRF). It is one of three institutions being introduced as part of a bill approved by parliament in December 2012.

Crispus Kiamba, permanent secretary in the ministry of science, says preliminary work to set up the foundation has begun. It might be established in the next two months, he says.

The foundation will manage the National Research Fund, a proposed grant facility, which would receive an initial input from the Treasury amounting to 2 per cent of GDP. It will also fund research projects selected by the National Innovation Agency (NIA), another of the three planned institutions.
