Funding available to collaborate with researchers in the State of São Paulo, Brazil

Call for Proposals for FAPESP-Imperial SPRINT Scheme Announced


Imperial and FAPESP, the Research Foundation in the State of São Paulo in Brazil, are delighted to announce a new call under the FAPESP-Imperial Research Engagement Scheme.

Joint projects between Imperial researchers and researchers in the State of São Paulo in Brazil will be funded with up to £24,000 over two years.

Read the Call for Proposals, including details on eligibility & application process [pdf]‌. The 2019 call for submission of proposals is now closed.

This offers a great opportunity to foster mobility and collaborative research between Imperial researchers and Brazilian partners. Funds can be used for activities such as scientific and technological seminars, specialized workshops, symposia, as well as short-term staff exchange and mobility. Projects should be reciprocal, including the same amount of activities in Brazil and the UK.

Since the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding with FAPESP in 2013, 16 projects have received funding to date, which has greatly supported the strengthening of Imperial’s collaboration with Brazilian partners.
