The Europe Office is managed by the Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE), which maintains a leadership role in promoting and coordinating international cooperation. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is a U.S. government agency responsible for promoting basic research and education in science and engineering. International activities are supported throughout the NSF portfolio. NSF typically makes awards to U.S. academic institutions, which retain all intellectual property rights. NSF conducts no research of its own.
