FAPESP and Shell will fund a research center for new energies in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. 

The parties jointly announced a call for proposals for the New Energies Research Center in four strategic divisions: Dense Energy Carriers, Advanced Energy Storage, Methane to Products, and Computational Material Science.

The call motivated twelve submissions, spanning the four research topics of interest. Each proposal received ad-hoc reviews and was analyzed by a panel of experts. The resulting documentation was inspected by the Joint Steering Committee for the call. Following this assessment, the criticisms and requests for clarification in the reviews were sent to the proposers for comments.

After examining the responses from the proposers, the Joint Steering Committee has conducted the interviews specified in the call, and now announces the following approved proposals:
