Nine participants at US universities as well as at National Laboratories propose to join forces with six Czech participants at Universities and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The participants will provide an interdisciplinary international research and education experience in the general area of nanoscience and renewable energy to undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students on both sides each year. They will also continue in organising week-long workshops alternating between Colorado and the Czech Republic, with each side supporting 20 participants. The broad impact of this activity is in the education of new cadres of junior scientists familiar with working in international teams and thinking of science globally.
