First funds awarded in Nobel Prize science scheme, paper says

Half a dozen “outstanding” mainland scientists are among the first beneficiaries of a national scheme to develop Nobel Prize-worthy research, the Global Times reported Thursday. The National Special Support Program for High-level Talents was launched in 2012 and aims to support 10,000 people in the natural sciences, engineering, philosophy, social sciences and higher education over the next decade, the report said. The program will fund 100 “outstanding talents” who have the potential to become world-class scientists and win the Nobel Prize, 8,000 “leading talents” in various fields and 2,000 “young talents” who are under 35.
