Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER)

PEER is now accepting pre-proposals for the next annual cycle of the program. This cycle sees the return of many familiar focus areas, including SERVIR/Environmental Management and Climate Change Resilience and Central and South Asia Transboundary Water Research, but also features new additions including Health Implementation Science and multiple country-specific focus areas, as well as partnerships with private companies. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2016, which gives applicants just over three months to find a USG-supported partner and finalize their research pre-proposal.
