NSF & USAID Launch PEER
The National Science Foundation(NSF) and the United States Agency for International Development(USAID) launched a new collaborative program called PEER (Partnership for Enhanced Engagement and Research) last week. PEER is a new international, interagency joint initiative which will address environmental challenges that affect both the United States and the developing world by reinforcing existing relationships and creating new connections. It will unite NSF’s competitively-awarded scientific investments in U.S. institutions with similarly awarded USAID funding to solve global challenges.
