The Research Grant Program provided by the Ministry of Higher Education Research & Innovation aims to build local research capacity, provide a stimulating research environment for scientific research and researchers and build their capabilities at various academic levels. The Block Funding Program is considered as one of the important research support and funding programs, as it has been developed to keep pace with the requirements of the research and provides institutions with a wider scope to present competitive research after evaluating and presenting it as a package. To support the application process, staff from the Ministry of Higher Education Research & Innovation have conducted a webinar on the funding announcement, guidelines, requirements, and scoring criteria. The webinar was specifically tailored to meet Oman Dental College’s particular needs. At the end, ODC faculty members, researchers and students had an opportunity to ask questions and exchange more in-depth information about the available funding programs.
