Emerging Science Partners and the Future of Global Research
Global Connections: Emerging Science Partners, the latest report from the Academy’s Challenges for International Scientific Partnerships (CISP) initiative, calls on the United States – the world’s largest funder of scientific research – to take bold and meaningful steps that will strengthen connections in an increasingly global network of science and technology. Countries around the world are boosting their national scientific funding and research capacity is increasing worldwide. The United States’ ability to fully participate in and lead this new international scientific landscape will depend largely on its ability to support new talent pipelines and foster sustainable, equitable partnerships. Recommendations in the report include pursuing partnerships with nations with which the United States has strained relations and adopting equity-based approaches for partnerships in nations with emerging research sectors.
