See the email below about the NSF PIRE (Partnerships for International
Research and Education) program. Austria seems to be encouraging
participation.

Subject: Article on International Activities of the US National Science
Foundation in "bridges"

Dear Mr. Fasshauer,

The Office of Science & Technology (OST) at the Embassy of Austria in
Washington, DC, invites you to read the article

"International Activities and the US National Science Foundation"
http://www.ostina.org/content/view/3755/1106/

in the current issue of "bridges," the OST's online magazine on science
and technology policy in Europe and North America.

In the academic year of 2008, Professor Hans Lischka from the
University of Vienna, Austria, hosted five US undergraduates at his
Institute for Theoretical Chemistry. During their research stay in
Vienna, the students applied methodologies that were developed by Prof.
William Hase of Texas Tech University and Prof. John Tully of Yale
University.

Such exchanges of undergraduate students are made possible by the US
National Science Foundation's Partnerships for International Research
and Education (PIRE) grant.

In their article, the authors Shireen Yousef and Jennifer
Slimowitz-Pearl of NSF not only list a full range of international
cooperation programs for scientists of all levels, but also give
examples of American and Austrian institutions involved in such
exchange programs.

We thought this article, which is also available as a podcast, might be
of special interest to you. Please feel free to send this information
to colleagues and others you know who might also be interested.

We wish you an enjoyable reading and listening experience!

With best regards,
Caroline Adenberger
