    1. Partnerships for International Research and Education PIRE I & II Post-Award Activities OISE PO team working --To help make the projects succeed, --To help OISE and all of NSF learn more about the projects, --To disseminate information on new and exciting models. Elizabeth Lyons, OISE October 29, 2007 OISE Advisory Committee Meeting

    2. Partnerships for International Research and Education OISE team – 7 PO’s ->12 PO’s managing the portfolio --Press releases, speeches, highlights --Human Subjects, supplement policy --Annual Progress Reports --Involvement of research directorates --Evaluation --PI meetings EARLY Results !!

    3. Partnerships for International Research and Education NSF Press Release(s) Highlights – for Congress Speeches by Drs. Bement & Olsen Institutional press releases Stories in major publications

    4. Partnerships for International Research and Education Post-Award Logistics --Human Subjects information --Supplement Policy --Annual Progress Reports --added travel information requested --PO from research directorate asked to look at it

    5. Partnerships for International Research and Education Measuring the Impacts of PIRE --Monitoring progress on program objectives --Student questions --Feedback from PI meeting --Hire contractor

    6. Partnerships for International Research and Education 2nd PI meeting October 15-16, 2007 at NSF -12 PIRE 1 PIs, each with a student -20 PIRE 2 PIs --Share progress in frontier science – with research directorates --Share information on impacts on students, institutions --Form a community of scientists, educators and universities – leading change

    7. Partnerships for International Research and Education 2nd PI meeting October 15-16, 2007 at NSF (cont.) --Provide project management guidance --Discuss evaluation of research, education, institutional change, including site visits --Discuss role of foreign collaborators --Identify different models and consider how to disseminate information on them

    8. Partnerships for International Research and Education • EARLY Results (many others will be long term!) • Successes • PIs feel science is great & getting • better • Partnerships – thriving, growing • domestic ties strengthened, too • Visits overseas are long enough • for real collaboration & learning • Leveraging funds in US & abroad • from universities, governments, industry • PIs feel impact on participant careers very positive

    9. Partnerships for International Research and Education Challenges Administrative load high Visas Sustainability, growth Assessment of Success Diversity

    10. Partnerships for International Research and Education Impacts on Science Beyond the Original Research Question -- Int’l data  IRIS availablefor many other studies --IRIS wants to copy success in developing countries of Americas, South East Asia --Trying to add climate equipment --Rare thriving African scientific network --Leveraged as much $$ in Africa  training geoscientists

    11. Partnerships for International Research and Education Impacts on students Questionnaire: -- international a big attractant -- international engagement much higher -- appreciate the cultural context science more Student Reports: -- learn new techniques, research approaches -- value international experience, collaborations -- strong motivator to finish and/or continue -- multiple mentors in US and abroad a plus -- new cultural experience a positive -- near-peer mentoring very helpful

    12. Partnerships for International Research and Education • Student Challenges • Language often a problem • Cultural transition often difficult • Logistics often challenging • -Progress toward PhD slowed if foreign lab not ready, equipment not available • -Family issues • Flexibility is key!!

    13. Partnerships for International Research and Education Examples of Impacts on Institutions --New Dual Degree program – International Ph. D. --New International focus for university capital campaign, PIRE as a model --Increases in number and quality of graduate student applications --Stronger relationships with university International Office

    14. Partnerships for International Research and Education --Stronger university IP policy & practice --Development of organizational structure with Infrastructure & many assets– beyond PIs and universities --Linkage of research to study abroad, leverage and strengthen --Stronger ties among U.S. universities joint recruiting for faculty and post-docs --Showcasing of PIRE projects by universities (PIRE envy)
