Lunar science has become a global endeavor. Addressing the many aspects of lunar research requires international collaboration to provide, among other resources, interdisciplinary scientific expertise and unique mission data. The NASA Lunar Science Institute 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 lunar science, making the NLSI a natural moderator in the international conversation for the field.

NLSI’s International Partnerships Program provides collaboration opportunities for researchers within the global lunar science community, as well as the international lunar education/ public outreach community. International partners are invited to participate in all aspects of the Institute’s 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 NLSI 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.
