The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and King’s College London announce a new call for joint research projects. The aim is to promote and strengthen collaboration between researchers affiliated with King’s College London and researchers affiliated with higher education and research institutions in the State of São Paulo.

This is the second edition of the call for proposals for collaborative research by FAPESP and King’s College London. In the first one, two projects were selected. The institutions have also launched joint calls for proposals for the mobility of researchers. Since 2010, 26 projects were selected.

The new call is open to proposals in all fields of knowledge. Each party will select the proposals according to its own procedures. Only the proposals selected by both parties will be funded.

King’s College London is prepared to fund selected projects with a total of up to USD 25,000 per project/per year. FAPESP is also prepared to fund for the equivalent amount of up to USD 25,000 per project/per year in the State of São Paulo.

The application shall include a joint research plan written by applicants from King’s College London and from the State of São Paulo. The research plan shall involve a clear description of the planned collaboration (distribution of work and methods of implementation) and the added value to be expected from the collaboration.

For applicants from the State of São Paulo, the collaborative proposal must be submitted to FAPESP as a Regular Research Award. The maximum project duration is 24 months, non-extendable.

The closing date for submission of proposals is November 17, 2017.
