NSF Supports GlobalNSF supports global research to advance science and engineering for sustainability
Date:1/17/2013

The National Science Foundation (NSF) today announced the 12 projects funded in a fourth round of Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) awards. Many of these projects engage scientists in research to develop clean, safe, reliable, affordable energy alternatives, as the need for solutions challenges societies across the globe.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) today also announced two awards totaling $500,000 through its Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) Science program that will support two NSF PIRE research projects, one in India and one in Mexico.

NSF's PIRE program, instituted in 2005, supports innovative, international research and education collaborations that advance three goals:

  • Facilitating new knowledge and discoveries at the frontiers of science and engineering;
  • Developing a diverse, globally-engaged, U.S. scientific and engineering workforce and
  • Building institutional capacity at U.S. universities to engage in productive international collaborations.

PIRE supports bold, forward-looking research whose successful outcomes result from all partners--U.S. and foreign--providing unique contributions to the research endeavor.

"The PIRE projects exemplify how the U.S. receives a 'collaborative advantage' from international cooperation in science and engineering," said NSF PIRE program manager John Tsapogas. "Scientific, educational and institutional outcomes are made much stronger by the collaboration than either side could achieve alone. Many of the mature PIRE projects have lived up that promise and the new awards are also expected to do so."

In addition to its partnership with USAID, the PIRE program in this latest round of awards established agreements with other domestic and foreign counterpart agencies to provide support for the foreign collaborators of the PIRE projects. The partners were: the U.S. Env
