NSF Vision Enabling the nation’s future through discovery, learningand innovation. And by Developing Global Scientists and Engineers NSF-3
Office of International Science and Engineering • Serves as a visible focal point, both inside and outside NSF, • for international science and engineering activities. • Promotes the development of an integrated, Foundation-wide, • international strategy. Staff with regional expertise. • Manages international activities that are innovative, • catalytic and responsive to the broad range of NSF interests.
Office of International Science and Engineering • Promotes global access to unique research sites, facilities, expertise and opportunities for collaboration. • Promotes international experiences for junior researchers - undergraduate students through postdoctoral fellows. • Supports activities in all subjects and priority areas within NSF. NSF-9
International Funding • Cooperative Research Projects via ENG, Discipline Programs, and Interdisciplinary Priority Areas, such as “Human and Social Dynamics” • Workshops and Planning visits • New International “Partnerships” • Postdoctoral Fellowships • Graduate Summer Student Institutes and Pan American Advanced Studies Institutes • International Research Experiences for Students
Science and Engineering Workforce Needs • Prepare scientists and engineers capable of meeting global challenges • Attract more U.S. students to science and engineering fields • Broaden participation in science and engineering fields • 2004: NSF Office of International S&E Restructured its programs in response.
