Home / Funding / U.S.-Ireland R&D Partnership Program

The U.S.-Ireland Research and Development Partnership, launched in July 2006, is a unique initiative involving funding agencies across three jurisdictions: United States of America (USA), Republic of Ireland (RoI) and Northern Ireland (NI). Under the U.S.-Ireland R&D Partnership programme, a "single-proposal, single-review" mechanism is facilitated by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH), who accept submissions from tri-jurisdictional (USA, NI and ROI) teams to a number of their existing funding programmes. All proposals submitted under the auspices of the partnership must have significant research involvement from researchers in all three jurisdictions.

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), together with the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department for the Economy (DfE) in Northern Ireland has also developed the Center to Center program, a mechanism to link SFI-funded Research Centers, NSF-funded Engineering Research Centers and researchers in centers in Northern Ireland.
