The BE-BASIC Consortium is a Public Private Consortium composed of mainly Dutch universities, knowledge institutes and companies which has received a research grant from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs for executing the BE-BASIC Program. The purpose of the Program is to develop the required knowledge and technology to stimulate bio-based ecologically balanced sustainable industrial chemistry.
FAPESP and BE-BASIC intend to collaborate in a Joint Call for Proposals (JCFP), with the aim of promoting and supporting research projects involving collaboration between scientists working in public or private research or teaching institutions in the State of São Paulo, Brasil and scientists associated to BE-BASIC in the Netherlands. The research projects should help to build up scientific and technological competencies, foster strategic alliances for scientific and technological development, promote the dissemination of knowledge and generate results which potentially could lead to applications with market value in the area(s) of interest to FAPESP and BE-BASIC.
