V.P. He Minghong Visits US and Canada

An NSFC delegation on science funding information management headed by Vice President He Minghong visited the U.S. and Canada during June 15-24, 2011.

Over the years, NSFC has established and maintained sound relationships with funding agencies in the U.S. and Canada, particularly in the domain of joint funding program and exchange of experiences in the funding management.

During its stay in the U.S., the delegation visited the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, learned about NSF’s internet-based project management system, including the development and implementation of their information systems.

In Canada, the delegation visited the Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ), the Canadian Institutes of Health (CIHR) and the University of Toronto. In its meeting with FRSQ, the delegation especially learned about FRSQ’s project funding and management information system and discussed the future collaboration in the two agencies.
