University endowments: Berkeley, Chicago, MIT, Stanford NSF PIRE program
The NSF Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) program seeks to catalyze a higher level of international engagement in the U.S. science and engineering community by supporting innovative, international research and education collaborations. The program will enable U.S. scientists and engineers to establish collaborative relationships with international colleagues in order to advance new knowledge and discoveries at the frontiers of science and engineering and to promote the development of a diverse, globally-engaged U.S. scientific and engineering workforce.
CNRS UMI and Umifre in America
A CNRS UMI is a full-fledged laboratory, as found in universities and research organizations. It is based in a single location, in France or abroad, and brings together researchers, students, postdocs, and support staff from CNRS and the partner institution(s). The Director of the UMI is jointly named by CNRS and the foreign partner institution(s).
