Slide1:  National Science Foundation Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) www.nsf.gov/oise Robb Winter rwinter@nsf.gov Fostering International Collaborations Office of International Science and Engineering Slide2:  “Global collaboration – among scientists, engineers, educators, industry and governments – can speed the transformation of new knowledge into new products, processes and services, and in their wake produce new jobs, create wealth, and improve the standard of living and quality of life worldwide.” NSF Director Arden L. Bement, Jr. August 2005 Materials World Network Symposium, Cancun, Mexico International cooperation in science is not a luxury; it is a necessity – and the foundation for the future. NSF Director Arden L. Bement, Jr. May 2006 NSF Core Value NSF OISE Co-funding Criteria:  NSF OISE Co-funding Criteria True intellectual collaboration with a foreign partner New international collaboration, as opposed to well-established ones Benefits to be realized from foreign collaboration Active research engagement of U.S. students and junior researchers at the foreign site OISE works closely with other NSF directorates and offices to co-fund innovative, catalytic new awards and supplements Why Collaborate ?:  Why Collaborate ? Achieve Significant Outcomes Generate research results that cannot be done alone Access Expertise, Facilities, Infrastructure, Data Leverage Resources Investments, Personnel, Equipment, Knowledge Next Generation of Globally Engaged Scientists/Engineers Develop/Expand Networks Strategic Positioning Leader vs. Strong Follower OISE Research Investments:  OISE Research Investments Co-fund with Research Directorates/Offices International Planning Visits and Workshops Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) Institution-focused models Larger award size and duration - $2.5 M; 5 years NSF Priority and Cross-Cutting Programs Biocomplexity, Math Sciences, Human and Social Dynamics, Nano, Cyber, Climate Change, Homeland security, Discovery K-12, IGERT, IPY, REUs, RETs OISE People Investments:  OISE People Investments International Research Fellowships (IRFP; NSF 06-582) Recent Ph.D’s, 9-24 months + re-entry Doctoral Dissertation Enhancement Projects (DDEP; NSF 04-036) Pan-American Advanced Studies Institutes (PASI; NSF 03-506) Intensive seminars, Ph.D’s/grad students East Asia and Pacific Summer Graduate Student Summer Institute (EAPSI, NSF 06-602) 8-week research programs, 6 East Asia/Pacific countries International Research Experiences for Students (IRES; NSF 04-036) International Research and Education: Planning Visits and Workshops (NSF 04-035) Planning visit – 7-14 days, <$20K Joint Workshops – focused area of research, < 2yrs, <$60K Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE; NSF 06-589) Program Specifics:  Program Specifics EAPSI’s (12Dec06!!!) www.nsf.gov/eapsi Internship in a research lab Science and science policy Society, language and cultural orientation ~ 8 week Programs in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, and Taiwan PASI’s 10-15 lecturers; 30-50 students Physical, mathematical, engineering, biological sciences 45+ funded in last 5 years Foreign researcher support OISE:  Thank You! http://www.nsf.gov/oise rwinter@nsf.gov OISE NSF Directorates:  Biological Sciences Computer & Info. Science & Engineering Education & Human Resources Engineering Geosciences Mathematical & Physical Sciences Social, Behavioral & Economic Sciences NSF Directorates NSF Offices:  Integrative Activities Polar Programs Cyberinfrastructure International Science and Engineering NSF Offices What NSF Attempts to Achieve:  What NSF Attempts to Achieve NSF pursues collaborative and mutually beneficial activities with countries consistent with its mandate to advance the U.S. S&E enterprise. NSF does not have a technical assistance mandate. International activities are funded by ALL of the disciplinary programs… As part of regular awards As supplements to regular awards But not all NSF directorates equally fund activities involving in all countries... E.g., Great majority of Africa-related grants related to biology, geology, atmospheric science and anthropology.

PASI on heat transfer in Mexico in 2000 led to four successive Summer Schools on topic. A 2003 PASI on Green Chemistry in 2003 led to the establishment of ACS organized Green Chemistry Summer Schools over the past three years all funded by private foundations. Participants from Latin America visited US institutions as students, postdocs, and guest lecturers. US scientists established collaborations or strengthened existing ones, particularly with Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, & Chile.
