The Partnership will help link scientists and engineers in partnerships across academia and support research collaboration by:
- Enabling researchers, North and South to apply for support to travel to the United States in order to develop proposals.
- Facilitating single integrated proposal submissions prepared by US, Ireland and Northern Ireland researchers through funding programmes operated by the funding agencies in each jurisdiction.
To businesses – access to research, commercial opportunities, increased competitiveness
To researchers – global networking, top level collaborations, increased profile, career development opportunities
To Governments – the recognition of Ireland, North and South, as a centre for research excellence leading to increased global competitiveness and higher levels of Foreign Direct Investment
