The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) announces the result of the third call for proposals in 2018 under the SPRINT – São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration initiative.

SPRINT aims at 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: Cardiff University, Imperial College London, University of Bath, Queen’s University of Belfast and University of Surrey (United Kingdom), Texas A&M University, University of Missouri and University of Nebraska – Lincoln (United States), Carleton University and University of Toronto (Canada), Swinburne University of Technology (Australia), Cognitive Science and Technology Council of Iran – CSTC (Iran), Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique – FNRS (Belgium) e University of Münster (Germany).

The opportunity 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 partners from Carleton University, CSTC, University of Missouri or University of Münster.
