NIDA International Program Announcements

As part of its effort to encourage rigorous collaborative international research, the NIDA International Program has issued three Program Announcements soliciting proposals for International Research Collaboration on Drug Abuse and Addiction Research to support projects that:

  • Are conducted in whole or in part outside the United States by investigators at U.S. institutions in partnership with investigators from other countries.
  • Take advantage of a unique set of resources or subject populations that would otherwise be difficult to access domestically.
  • Address NIDA's scientific priority areas, which currently include seek-test-treat and retain HIV/AIDS interventions; abuse of amphetamine-type stimulants, synthetic drugs, or other designer drugs; inhalant abuse; smoking during pregnancy and the impact of prenatal tobacco exposure and the effects of early exposure to tobacco in young people and adolescents on development of addiction and other diseases and on cognitive development; and drugged driving.

The broad call for innovative research is designed to encourage applications in all areas of drug addiction science, including but not limited to prevention, basic science, epidemiology, treatment, and health services.

Specific application requirements and deadlines differ for the three grant mechanisms:
