Link2US Project Release New Report: Participation Statistics of EU-based Researchers in U.S. National Programmes
Oct 28, 2010
The United States (U.S) national science and technology system is highly decentralized, with funding authority spread across a dozen or more executive agencies, cabinet departments, and sub-units. Out of the numerous entities and programmes, twelve U.S. funding programmes, covering three entities, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), are open for European Union (EU)-based researcher/institution participation. In the context of this report, “open” refers to a programme that EU-based researchers/institutions can submit applications to directly receive funding.
The main objective of the Participation Statistics of EU-Based Researchers in U.S. National Programmes is to track the number, funding amount, type of grant, and country breakdown, where available, of EU-based researchers/institutions receiving grants. This report is the first of two reports that seek to track these statistics over thirty-six months for fiscal years (FY) 2009-2011.
