The Director General Islamic Academy of Sciences (IAS) has requested its fellows to circulate the following notice issued by PEER (The Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research) for distribution among the researchers in their respective country. PEER is a program sponsored by The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to meet the world’s development challenges. As part of its science and technology strategy, USAID in collaboration with the National Science Foundation (NSF) is supporting various mechanisms to leverage the investments that other U.S. government agencies make in scientific research and training. In compliance with this request I have the pleasure to provide relevant information in the link about complete eligibility details regarding online submission of applications. GNOBB fervently requests its members to avail of this unique opportunity in order to initiate collaborative research with their US counterparts.
