The National Science Foundation supports collaborative projects involving academic institutions, private industry, and state and local governments. The Foundation also works closely with other Federal agencies in cross-cutting areas of research and education, and we support U.S. participation in international scientific efforts. Promoting partnerships is one of NSF's core strategies. Collaboration and partnerships between disciplines and institutions and among academe, industry, and government enable the movement of people, ideas, and tools throughout the public and private sectors.

--> International Polar Year 2007-2008
The International Polar Year 2007-2008, from March 2007 through March 2009, was envisioned as an intense scientific campaign to explore new frontiers in polar science--improving our understanding of the critical role of the polar regions in global processes, and educating the public about the polar regions. The President's Office of Science and Technology Policy designated NSF as the lead Federal agency in organizing U.S.-IPY activities. In April 2012, a conference in Montreal drew the International Polar Year 2007-2008 to an official close. See the archival U.S. Interagency IPY 2007-2008 website to learn about some of the research and education activities that took place.
