NSF invites requests for supplemental funding from existing quantum information science and engineering research awardees to add a new—or strengthen an existing—international dimension to their award. International collaboration should advance fundamental knowledge and discovery in quantum fields and enhance the NSF Principal Investigator’s (PI) own research and/or education objectives as outlined in the existing NSF award. Supplemental funding requests should represent mutual benefit and true intellectual collaboration with international partners. International collaborations may consist of short-term visits (up to 1 month) to establish relationships or mid- to long-term visits (up to 12 months) to engage in research activities. While collaboration with Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom are of particular interest, requests for international supplements to collaborate with other countries will also be considered.
This opportunity is open only to PIs and co-PIs of active NSF awards in quantum information science and engineering. For the purposes of this opportunity, quantum information science and engineering awards are considered those that aim to advance fundamental understanding of uniquely quantum phenomena and harness them to promote information processing, transmission, and measurement in ways that classical approaches do less efficiently, or not at all. The PI, co-PI(s), senior personnel, graduate students, and/or postdoctoral researchers currently funded under the existing NSF award may participate in the international collaboration. Supplemental funding is not intended to bring new personnel onto the grant.
