NSF: Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) 11-564
Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) is an NSF-wide program that supports international activities across all NSF-supported disciplines. The primary goal of PIRE is to support high quality projects in which advances in research and education could not occur without international collaboration. PIRE seeks to catalyze a higher level of international engagement in the U.S. science and engineering community.
International partnerships are essential to addressing critical science and engineering problems. In the global context, U.S. researchers and educators must be able to operate effectively in teams with partners from different national environments and cultural backgrounds. PIRE promotes excellence in science and engineering through international collaboration and facilitates development of a diverse, globally-engaged, U.S. science and engineering workforce.
This PIRE competition will be open to all areas of science and engineering research which are supported by the NSF.
USC may submit one preliminary proposal as the lead institution. Full proposals will be accepted by invitation only. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 8, 2016. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
NSF indicates that preliminary proposals are due by September 14, 2016. For more information: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2016/nsf16571/nsf16571.htm
