RF CUNY Brown Bag Research Webinars: NSF Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) Grants
November 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Overview of Webinar: International engagement is increasingly critical to keeping the U.S. globally competitive at the frontiers of knowledge. The PIRE program supports a set of cutting-edge interdisciplinary projects focused on use-inspired research on climate change and/or clean energy in which advances require international collaboration. PIRE projects support team readiness to grow into prominent enduring international hubs of research excellence that advance knowledge, empower communities, and generate discovery and innovative technological solutions at a global scale. PIRE support is intended to scale up and expand research in all science and engineering disciplines and in interdisciplinary areas by enhancing and building partnerships beyond the PIRE funding period and catalyzing readiness to grow to center level activity. PIRE promotes cooperation among scientists and engineers from all nations and enables research at the leading edge of science and engineering by facilitating partnerships with others nationally and internationally, by educating and preparing a diverse, world-class STEM workforce, and by fostering institutional capacity for international collaboration. The PIRE projects should enhance diversity, equity and inclusion in science and engineering in both research and education.
