Results of the second ESPCA Call for Proposals

FAPESP announces the results of the second Escola São Paulo de Ciência Avançada (São Paulo School of Advanced Science, SPSAS) Call for Proposals (FAPESP Call for Proposals 04/2010), launched on 28 April, 2010.

The goal of the ESPCA is to create opportunities for researchers from São Paulo to organize events that attract young students or postdoctoral researchers from other countries and regions, encouraging them to interact with local students and researchers and to debate cutting-edge scientific topics.

The expectation of FAPESP is that these events will contribute to the recruitment of talent and increase the international visibility of research in the state of São Paulo.
