FAPESP announces a new call for proposals with the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts of the Free State of Bavaria (StMWK), from Germany, represented by the Bavarian Academic Center for Latin America (BAYLAT).

The institutions offer financial support to the organization of two workshops that bring together early career researchers and PhD students who are about to defend their thesis. Proposals must be jointly prepared by two leading researchers: one from a higher education or research institution in the State of São Paulo and the other from a higher education or research institution in the Free State of Bavaria. 

Proposals will be accepted in all fields of knowledge. One workshop will take place in the State of São Paulo and the other in the Free State of Bavaria, in English and with up to 40 researchers.

Researchers from 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 funding lines: Thematic Projects, Young Investigators Award (JP), Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (CEPIDs/RIDCs), and Research Partnership for Technological Innovation (PITE).

The first workshop must take place between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019. The second workshop must take place between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.

The deadline for proposals submission is October 8, 2018.

The call for proposals is published at: www.fapesp.br/en/11877.

Guidelines for proponents from the State of São Paulo are available (in Portuguese) at www.fapesp.br/11878.
