The So Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announce the result of a call for research proposals for scientific cooperation through their programs, BIOTA and Dimensions of Biodiversity.

The institutions will fund a project that will be conducted by researchers from Instituto Butantan and from The Ohio State University.

This call for proposals for 2016 is based in a broader call for proposals published annually by the NSF Dimensions of Biodiversity’s Program, which invites the participation of US researchers to apply for NSF’s regular funding or co-funding opportunities under NSF agreements with FAPESP and other agencies.

The duration of the research project must be 5 years with possibility of extension for up to 12 additional months, in exceptional condition, as justified and approved by the corresponding agency.
