New bilateral pilot opportunity will fund collaborations between US and UK bioscience researchers
Date:3/12/2014

This Pilot opportunity is designed to make it easier for research teams comprised of scientists from the United States and the United Kingdom to manage funding logistics and to simultaneously obtain funding from both countries. It is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Biological Sciences and the U.K.'s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).

This Pilot opportunity will use a simplified, flexible review process that will allow U.S./U.K. research teams to submit a single proposal that will undergo a single review process by only one of the partner agencies. Successful proposals will be funded by both NSF and the BBSRC.

Cora B. Marrett, acting director of NSF, said, "Although NSF has always funded U.S. scientists involved in international collaborations, such collaborations have become increasingly important, partly because of the rapid globalization of research. The many benefits of this Pilot opportunity will include better coordination of funding for U.S./U.K. research teams and increased bilateral awareness of scientific strengths and advancements between the U.S. and U.K. funding agencies."

Jackie Hunter, BBSRC chief executive, said, "Partnerships are vital to U.K. bioscience, offering the opportunity to combine resources and expertise to tackle global challenges. As funders, we are working to reduce some of the barriers encountered by researchers when working with international partners. This pilot is an important step that will help to streamline the collaborative funding process between NSF and BBSRC, making applications easier for those in our community working with the U.S."

The Pilot opportunity was created under a Memorandum of Understanding between NSF and the U.K.'s research councils, which support research partnerships between the two countries. The Pilot opportunity is designed to reduce obstacles that have traditionally been faced by researchers
