How it works
- Significant participation by researchers from each jurisdiction in each project
- Competitive peer review
- Joint funding, with each jurisdiction supporting its own research costs
The Partnership will help link scientists and engineers in partnerships across academia and support research collaboration by:
- Enabling researchers, North and South to apply for support, to travel to the United States in order to develop proposals.
- Facilitating single integrated proposal submissions prepared by US, Ireland and Northern Ireland researchers through funding
programmes operated by the funding agencies in each jurisdiction.
To businesses - access to research, commercial opportunities, increased competitiveness
To researchers - global networking, top level collaborations, increased profile, career development opportunities
To Governments - the recognition of Ireland, North and South, as a centre for research excellence leading to increased global competitiveness and higher levels of Foreign Direct Investment
