NSF's Central and Eastern Europe Program (CEE) supports balanced and mutually beneficial cooperative activities with the region in all fields normally supported by NSF.
The Program's goals are: (1) close integration of program activities with the research priorities of NSF's disciplinary division. As part of this effort, all proposals for cooperative research projects with the New Independent States of the former Soviet Union are submitted directly to the research divisions for competitive review and, if successful, are funded jointly by the discipline program and INT; (2) investing boldly in innovative new projects with the potential for significant benefit to the U.S. research community; (3) capitalizing on the region's strengths in science and special features by providing access to unique sites and databases for U.S. researchers; (4) encouraging multidisciplinary and regional activities; and (5) encouraging shared funding of cooperative research projects by partner countries.
