Does IAPWS give funding for research?

IAPWS is not a funding organization. However, IAPWS does fund a few young scientists each year to work in a collaborative way involving two (or more) IAPWS member countries. The amount of money for these projects is rather small (usually around $10,000); the primary purpose is to encourage collaborative research.

In addition, IAPWS issues IAPWS Certified Research Needs (ICRNs) describing areas in which IAPWS judges research is needed. One purpose of these documents is that researchers may include them in applications for funding from other agencies to document the industrial need for the research. Current ICRNs are listed on this page.
