Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) NSF Wide Programs
The PIRE program is currently paused for revision of the solicitation. We anticipate release of a new solicitation in late FY 2020, with funding in FY 2022. Details will be available when the updated solicitation is published.
The current PIRE competition (2016-2017) is closed to new preliminary proposals.
Received preliminary proposals will be reviewed over the next few months. Decisions on invitations to submit full proposals are expected by the end of January 2017. Those PIs invited to submit full proposals have a deadline date of April 24, 2017 to submit full proposals.

Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) is an NSF-wide program that supports international activities across all NSF-supported disciplines. The primary goal of PIRE is to support high quality projects in which advances in research and education could not occur without international collaboration. PIRE seeks to catalyze a higher level of international engagement in the U.S. science and engineering community.
International partnerships are essential to addressing critical science and engineering problems. In the global context, U.S. researchers and educators must be able to operate effectively in teams with partners from different national environments and cultural backgrounds. PIRE promotes excellence in science and engineering through international collaboration and facilitates development of a diverse, globally-engaged, U.S. science and engineering workforce.
This PIRE competition will be open to all areas of science and engineering research which are supported by the NSF.
