Project Description

This project will help facilitate international collaborations in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields by U.S.-based scientists and engineers, including faculty and students, with colleagues around the world.

Identify the main topics of existing NSF-funded international collaborations. Identify country investments and priorities that may indicate opportunities for cooperation in new areas. Start with expanding existing country summaries for developed countries, then prepare new summaries for developing countries and regional assessments. Global analyses for specific NSF and White House STEM initiatives may be part of the project.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science…” with an annual budget of $7.5 billion (FY 2016). The Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) promotes development of an integrated, Foundation-wide international strategy.
