NASA in Europe
Since 1964 NASA has maintained an office in the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France to coordinate NASA programs and interests in Europe.
The NASA Europe Representative works with regional aeronautics and space officials and industry representatives on key programs and serves as a local point of contact for NASA meetings and travel in the region.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Europe Office is located in the U.S. Embassy in Paris and facilitates NSF activities in Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. The Office does not review proposals or administer awards. The NSF Europe Office has three major roles:
Facilitation: The Office promotes collaboration between the U.S. and European science and engineering communities.
Representation: The Office represents NSF to national and multi-national science organizations throughout Europe, and serves as liaison between NSF and agencies, institutions and researchers.
Reporting: The Office monitors and reports on science and engineering developments and policies in Europe.
