The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the British Council announce a new call for proposals to support the organization of research workshops.

The call aims to provide financial support to bring together a UK/São Paulo State cohort of early career researchers to take part in workshops focusing on building links for future collaboration and enhancing career opportunities.

The initiative is announced under the scope of the Researcher Links program, supported by the Newton Fund. FAPESP and the British Council will co-fund the workshops.

Workshops will be coordinated by two leading researchers, one from a UK institution and one working in a higher education or research institution in the State of São Paulo.

Proposals will be accepted in any discipline/multidisciplinary area including from the natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities.

The workshops, with a duration from three to five days, should take place in the State of São Paulo between February 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019. Up to 40 researchers can take part in each workshop.

The events will be coordinated by two leading researchers, one from a UK institution and one from an institution in the State of São Paulo.

Workshop Coordinators from the State of São Paulo must be or have been Principal or Co-Principal Investigators of research projects funded by FAPESP within at least one of the following FAPESP funding lines: Thematic Projects, Young Investigators Award (JP), Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centres (CEPIDs/RIDCs), and Research Partnership for Technological Innovation (PITE).

Applicants should submit a joint proposal to the British Council and to FAPESP before June 13, 2017.
