On July 7, 2011, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) launched a new joint program, called Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER).

PEER's goal is to address environmental challenges that affect both the United States and the developing world by reinforcing existing relationships and creating new connections. The PEER program will support competitively selected scientists and students in developing countries who are collaborating with US scientists funded by NSF. These scientists and students, undertaking research in developing countries, bring to the table significant resources, including expertise and equipment. PEER aims to engage host-country scientists and students on topics of importance to USAID and NSF.
