Continued progress in materials research is increasingly dependent upon collaborative efforts among several different disciplines, as well as closer coordination among funding agencies and effective partnerships involving universities, industry, and national laboratories. In addition, because of the growing interdependence of the world's economies, partnerships are important not only at the national level but from an international point of view as well. The National Science Foundation is working together with counterpart national and multinational funding organizations worldwide to enhance opportunities for collaborative activities in materials research between US investigators and their colleagues abroad. This solicitation describes an activity to foster opportunities for collaboration in materials research between investigators in the US and their counterparts
abroad. It includes joint activities between NSF and funding organizations in (a) the Americas, through the Inter-American Materials Collaboration (CIAM); (b) Europe, including national European funding organizations, the European Science Foundation, and the European Commission; and (c) other countries or regions. Proposals submitted to NSF in response to this solicitation must have clear relevance to fundamental materials phenomena, synthesis, characterization, properties and/or processing. NSF will accept proposals from eligible US institutions addressing collaborations between researchers from the US and participating countries/regions. Concurrently, investigators at institutions abroad should submit to the counterpart funding organization in their country/region a request for support of their side of the collaboration. NSF will consider support for the US side of such collaborations,
with the expectation that funding or research organizations from the appropriate countries/regions will consider supporting the costs of the non-US participants. Projects proposed to NSF are expected to offer students and junior researchers the opportunity to participate in an international research and education experience and, more generally, for integrating research and training in an international environment, and to clearly demonstrate the value added by the international collaboration.
