ABOUT THE NSF BEIJING OFFICE

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is a U.S. government agency responsible for promoting basic research and education in science and engineering. International activities are supported throughout the NSF portfolio. NSF typically makes awards to U.S. academic institutions, which retain all intellectual property rights. NSF conducts no research of its own.

The Foundation's Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) maintains a leadership role in promoting and coordinating international cooperation, and manages the NSF Beijing Office, as well as two other overseas offices in Tokyo and Paris.

The NSF Beijing Office has three major roles:

  • Facilitation: Promotes collaboration between the U.S. and Chinese science and engineering communities.
  • Representation: Represents NSF to national science organizations throughout China.
  • Reporting: Monitorsand reports on developments in the Chinese scientific community.
