is conducted eight times per year. Program Goals: (a) to increase the 
participation of leading U.S. scholars and professionals in Fulbright academic 
exchanges; (b) to encourage new activities that go beyond the traditional 
Fulbright activities of lecturing and research; (c) to promote increased 
connections between U.S. and non-U.S. post-secondary academic institutions.

INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION IN CHEMISTRY BETWEEN 
US INVESTIGATORS AND THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN GERMANY,
UNITED KINGDOM AND CHINA  (ICC)

Websitehttp://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2011/nsf11585/nsf11585.htm
Abstract: The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to enhance 
opportunities for collaborative activities between U.S. and foreign 
investigators. To realize this goal the Chemistry Division at NSF has partnered 
with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; German Research Foundation),
the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of the United
Kingdom and the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC).  NSF Chemistry
will accept collaborative research proposals in chemistry that establish new bilateral
collaborations between U.S. investigators and investigators from Germany, United
Kingdom or China.  The proposals will be written in English.The program seeks new
and highly innovative 3-year collaborative projects that break new ground and 
demonstrate high level of synergy between the collaborating investigators.  The program 
will not accept proposals for projects that were funded in the past or are currently funded
by other funding sources. The program will also not accept proposals for projects that
largely overlap or are closely related to research projects that are currently carried out 
in the collaborators' laboratories.  The proposed 3-year projects must be in areas that 
are supported by the NSF Division of Chemistry programs in Analytical and Surface 
Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Theoretical 
and Computational Chemistry.  The program encourages the development and use of cyber
infrastructure to facilitate communication, data sharing and remote control of 
instrumentation to increase the level of synergy of the proposed projects.  The 
program also encourages meaningful participation of graduate students, postdoctoral
research associates and juniorinvestigators in the proposed international research 
collaborations since it seeks to develop a diverse, globally-engaged, U.S. 
science and engineering workforce.  Research activities of U.S. graduate students,
postdoctoral research associates and junior researchers, including those from 
underrepresented groups, in the laboratories of international collaborators should
be an integral part of proposals submitted to this program.
Estimated number of awards: 10 -30      Dollars available: $10 million over three years.

of important materials to existing digitization projects, or the development of 
infrastructure (either technical "middleware," tools, or knowledge-sharing) to 
support U.S.-England digitization work.

Applications should explain the need for the U.S.-England partnership and provide 
workable solutions to some of the issues of managing and developing transatlantic
collections. Thus, activities supported may include:

  • proposing methods to rejoin via digitization "split" humanities collections 
    that currently exist on either side of the Atlantic;
  • developing a detailed plan for the digitization of humanities collections that 
    could benefit U.S.-England research and performing a limited pilot digitization
    program to test infrastructure and procedures;
  • connecting existing split digitized collections, detailing suitable transatlantic 
    standards and communication strategies;
  • creating a virtual archive or resource that would serve as middleware to join 
    complementary materials (analog or digital) in the U.S. and England;
  • articulating how collaboration between U.S. and English digitization efforts 
    might function, including but not limited to developing selection criteria, identifying
    the physical nature of the collection and its effect on digitization workflow, 
    undertaking test data capture, identifying suitable standards for international 
    collections, and indicating how collections could be exploited in U.S.- England
    research; and
  • comparing the needs of researchers in both the U.S. and England and their
    uses of digitized primary resources.

Awards range from $100,000 to $240,000 (approximately £50,000 to £120,000) 
for a one-year period.
