National Science Foundation Investigators – Research visits to ERC projects

On July 13, 2012, the European Commission and the National Science Foundation (NSF) signed an Implementing Arrangement to enable U.S. – based scientists and engineers with 1) NSF-funded CAREER awards and 2) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to pursue research collaboration with European Research Council (ERC) researchers and their teams (http://erc.europa.eu/sites/default/files/press_release/files/Press_release_NSF-ERC_agreement_final.pdf). This initiative is designed to facilitate the interaction of researchers from both systems in their endeavour to further advance research frontiers and seek answers to major challenges, within the context of the ERC funded activity.

The collaboration will be implemented as research visits of up to one year to ERC project teams by U.S. researchers that will be preselected by the NSF.

If you are either a U.S. – based scientists and engineers with 1) NSF-funded CAREER awards and 2) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships and want to carry out a short stage in our group, please, contact us so we can join this initiative and your stay may be supported.
