CRDF Global is an independent nonprofit organization that promotes international scientific and technical collaboration through grants, technical resources and training. CRDF Global is based in Arlington, Virginia with offices in Russia; Ukraine; Kazakhstan and Jordan. It is dedicated to advancing peace and prosperity through science and technology collaboration.
With more than 30 partners worldwide and a diverse international audience speaking several languages, CRDF Global’s website serves as an important communication tool for disseminating information about upcoming funding opportunities and conferences. It also connects scientists to each other and educates the general public about its work.

- Developed a new navigation systemthat allows visitors to access resources by CRDF Global program, topic or region of the world.
- Created a design that more fully embodies CRDF Global’s worldwide brand, collaborative style and progressive programs and services.
- Implemented the SiteFinity content management system.
- Create dynamic topic page so that a scientist looking for resources on specific topics—for example, Science Diplomacy—can learn about CRDF Global’s work in this area, including funding opportunities, upcoming events and recent news.
