Issues in EU Participation in U.S. Federal Science & Technology Research Funding Programmes

Jun 30, 2011

Link2US organized a workshop at the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA) Annual Conference in Braganca, Portugal on 24 June 2011. The aim of the session was to better understand major U.S. research funding programmes and to help identify key issues and navigate obstacles related to these programmes for grant administrators/ managers, particularly those in non-U.S. institutions. The session featured a discussion to elucidate those policy areas that should be made more coherent and compatible by U.S. and EU authorities to ease research cooperation.

Two U.S. funding entities – National Institute of Health (NIH) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – were represented and speakers gave overviews on the programmes available for EU researchers, along with comments about grants stewardship regarding foreign applicants.
