The initiative 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 proposals submission for the mobility of researchers with the following institutions, that hold cooperation agreements with FAPESP: University of Münster (Germany); Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS, Belgium); University of Victoria (Canada); Purdue University, Texas A&M University, University of California San Diego and University of Nebraska – Lincoln (United States); Leiden University (The Netherlands); and Durham University (United Kingdom).

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

Proposals in collaboration with FNRS are still under review, nearing completion.
