PROGRAM: Grants support research-oriented seminars or workshops for small groups of researchers from the U.S. and Hungary to exchange information, review the current status of a specific field of science or engineering, and plan cooperative research. Interested persons should call the program office for current information prior to applying. Proposals may be submitted at any time of the year, but applicants are encouraged to meet the target date of May 1. Processing time averages seven months, but seminar organizers may need 12 months advance for planning purposes.
QUALIFICATIONS: U.S. universities and colleges, professional societies, research institutes, agencies affiliated with such organizations, and individual scientists and engineers may apply for support. Principal investigators/project directors should be U.S. scientists or engineers with professional experience equivalent to at least five years of postdoctoral scientific work.
RESTRICTIONS: Activities typically require approval of both NSF and the Hungarian counterpart agency before funding is given by either country.
