The U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) program announces the opening of a new funding cycle for international scientific research. PEER awards will support local researchers working in partnership with a current U.S. government funded researcher.

The goals of PEER are to: better translate evidence into policy for improved development outcomes, build capacity among local scientists and research institutions, and strengthen research partnerships between developing countries and the U.S. The program is implemented by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

 

Since its launch in 2011, PEER has supported 300 researchers in over 50 countries, with a total investment of over $55 million. The program is a collaboration between USAID and nine federal science agencies: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), the National

Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric administration (NOAA), the Smithsonian Institution (SI), the United States Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA/ARS), the United States Forest Service (USFS), and the United States Geological

Survey (USGS).
