If you’ve been following our blog for the last few months, then you know that we’ve been highlighting our International Offices and this month’s highlight is our Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development – or AOARD for short.
On Monday night, Tuesday morning for our friends in Tokyo, we sat down and had an entertaining hour talking about how to do business with AOARD but before we get into that let’s talk about AFOSR’s International Offices and how they seek to build mutually beneficial relationships between scientists from around the world with scientists in the United States to accelerate science and technology achievement and leverage diversity of thought. You can learn more about AFOSR’s IO programs and tools: HERE.
With international offices in Arlington, Santiago, London, and Tokyo… the sun never sets on AFOSR. International Program Officers (IPOs) at these offices fund #BasicResearch grants at foreign institutions across Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Central and South America.
Established under AFOSR in 1992, AOARD promotes basic science and scientific interchanges of interest to the USAF and USSF through the combined efforts of multinational top researchers within the Asia-Pacific region. The Asia-Pacific region has been rapidly rising in importance within the scientific community and publishes more scientific papers compared to other regions globally. Key technologies in this region include nanotechnology, biotechnology, information and cognitive sciences.Continue reading
