The National Science Foundation
(NSF) and the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) support extramural grant programs in
fundamental research on the environment. The NSF/EPA competitions have been
developed based on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the agencies, which
establishes a partnership emphasizing the support and merit review of fundamental
environmental research. This is the ninth year since the inception of the
first NSF/EPA Partnership joint award competitions. (For example, during this
period, there have been seven Technology for a Sustainable Environment (TSE)
competitions.) Partnership areas are sometimes added and/or deleted, and
partnership activities can exist outside the formal framework of the existing
MOU. Information on past partnership activities is provided below.
