The NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) is uniquely poised to bring people together via the realm of science, where the pinnacle of success is sharing results with the world. NASA is seen as a leader in space science, making the SSERVI a natural moderator in the international conversation for the field.

SSERVI’s International Partnerships Program provides collaboration opportunities for researchers within the global science community, as well as the international education/ public outreach community. International partners are invited to participate in all aspects of the Institutes activities and programs on a no-exchange-of-funds basis.

Non-U.S. science organizations can propose to become either Associate or Affiliate members of the SSERVI on a no-exchange-of-funds basis. Affiliate partnerships are with non-government institutions; the majority of agreements will be Affiliate. Associate partnerships are government-to-government agreements; this includes space agencies.
