FAPESP and the German Ministry of Education and Research announce result of call for proposals

Institutions will support six collaborative research projects in Bioeconomy, with focus on sustainable agriculture, food production, biomass and sustainable bioproducts

FAPESP and the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) announce result of the second call for proposals under the scientific cooperation agreement signed by the institutions.

The aim of the call is to support and strengthen the collaboration between researchers from the State of São Paulo and researchers from Germany within the Bioeconomy area.

The call invited joint research proposals related to sustainable agriculture; food production (sustainability of processes and materials, saving energy and reducing waste); use/processing of sustainably produced biomass to make biobased products; and development of sustainable bioproducts.

FAPESP and the BMBF have selected six proposals to be conducted by researchers from Germany and the State of São Paulo.
