A unique public-private partnership, CRDF promotes international scientific and technical collaboration, primarily between the United States and Eurasia, through grants, technical resources, and training.

CRDF’s new web site enables researchers around the world to identify new funding opportunities and connect with an international community of collaborative scholars. iapps’ Orgitecture platform streamlines communication and information gathering for CRDF’s diverse audience of prospective grantees, journalists, and others interested in international science collaboration.

A new clickable map and online grants database enables visitors to search CRDF’s previous grants by state, country, Congressional district and program area. Current and former CRDF grantees can use the site to submit testimonials about the outcome of their grants.

Orgitecture’s web-based Content Management System enables CRDF staff to keep content current, while its intuitive user interface directs site visitors to the information they need most. Seamless integration of the CMS enables staff to manage and cross-post content on CRDF’s staff intranet and the new public site.
