United States Federal Government Funding Programmes and European Union Researchers

The European Union and the United States first entered into a Science and Technology (S&T)  Cooperation Agreement in 1998. The S&T Agreement has been most recently renewed in 2009, for another five year period, and encourages wide-ranging research ties between the two sides. Given the decentralized nature of the U.S. research funding system, there is a need for greater visibility of the varied funding programmes that can support international cooperation.
