European Participation in U.S. Federal Science & Technology Research Funding Programs: Case Study of Department of Energy – Funded Researchers

euro participation
Objective
To elaborate on the experiences of the limited numbers of EU-based researchers who received DOE funding previously identified in the survey report, more in-depth interviews were conducted to identify key issues that these researchers faced when applying to and participating in DOE extramural funding programs.

The interviews are presented as a case study report where the responses are presented as they were received in order to provide a fuller and more complete understanding of the individual European experience with DOE funding programs and  to provide the funding agencies on both sides of the Atlantic (including but not limited to DOE and the European Commission) with insight to help improve their processes and policies with regards to foreign researchers and fostering international cooperation.
