Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

NSF Research Opportunities in Europe

February 26th, 2015 / in NSF, policy, Research News / by Helen Wright


The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently released two Dear Colleague Letters (DCL) describing research opportunities in Europe.

Dear Colleague Letter: Research Opportunities in Europe for NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellows

Dear Colleague Letter: Research Opportunities in Europe for NSF CAREER Awardees

From the DCL:

To further scientific and technological cooperation between the European Community and the United States, an Implementing Arrangement was signed on July 13, 2012 to enable U.S. scientists and engineers with NSF-funded CAREER awards and Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to pursue research collaboration with European colleagues supported through EU-funded European Research Council (ERC) grants.


Connecting researchers with complementary strengths and shared interests promotes scientific progress in solving some of the world’s most vexing problems. This international research opportunity is mutually beneficial to the U.S. participants and the hosts through cooperative activities during research visits and also by establishing international research partnerships to enrich future research activities in Europe and the U.S.

The due date for both opportunities is April 24, 2015. See the Postdoctoral Research DCL and the CAREER Awardees DCL for more information about eligibility, conditions, and how to apply.
