NERC and NSF extend joint funding system to cover geosciences

The UK’s Natural Environment Research Council and the National Science Foundation in the United States have broadened the scope of their system for collaborative funding submissions to include the NSF’s Directorate for Geosciences. This means researchers will only have to submit to funding proposals to either NERC or the NSF, rather than having to apply to both. 

The agreements will run throughout 2015 and 2016, after which they will be reviewed.
