The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) announces the result of the second call for proposals in 2017 under the SPRINT – São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration initiative.

The call for proposals has the purpose of promoting the engagement of researchers affiliated with higher education and research institutions in the State of São Paulo in partnership with researchers abroad in order to further develop qualitatively the ongoing research projects and work cooperatively, aiming at the elaboration of joint research projects for medium and long term.

The call detailed the conditions to submit proposals for the mobility of researchers with the following institutions, that hold cooperation agreements with FAPESP: Australian Technology Network of Universities, University of New South Wales, University of Queensland e University of Wollongong (Australia); Universidad de Salamanca (Spain); University of Missouri (United States); CNRS (France); Brunel University London, Queens University of Belfast, University of Bath e University of Manchester (United Kingdom).

The call was also opened to proposals from researchers whose partners are from institutions that did not applied for this edition or with those that FAPESP does not have a current agreement.

No proposals were selected with Brunel University London.

Selected proposals:
