A new collaborative research agreement
A new collaborative research agreement has been signed between the National Science Foundation and the RCUK designed to help support international research partnerships between the US and the UK, It will enable a simplified and flexible process for researchers wishing to apply for UK-US collaborative research funding, with proposals being submitted to either the NSF or RCUK (using the standard year-round responsive funding streams) depending on where the greatest portion of the research is to be carried out. Successful projects will receive funds from both agencies, with the NSF funding US researchers, and RCUK funding UK researchers.
Initial implementation will be focused on the NSF Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Directorate (SBE) in partnership with ESRC, AHRC and BBSRC
