 FAPESP and MIT announce results of their call for proposals

Approved proposal for the exchange of researchers involves the Center for Optics and Photonics from the State University of Sao Paulo (USP) in São Carlos (MIT)

The São Paulo State Research Foundation (FAPESP), Brazil, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, announce the outcome of the Call for Proposals for the exchange of researchers.

One proposal was selected, in physics, involving the Center for Optics and Photonics from the State University of São Carlos in Sao Paulo (USP São Carlos), one of FAPESP´s Research, Innovation and Diffusion Centers (RIDC), and the Center for Ultracold Atoms at MIT. The participant Principal Investigator at MIT is Prof. Wolfgang Ketterle, Nobel Prize in Physics in 2001 (along with Eric Allin Cornell and Carl Wieman) for his groundbreaking research on Bose-Einstein condensation through laser cooling and isolation of ultracold atoms.

FAPESP and MIT would support selected proposals with combined funding of up to US$ 30,000 (US$ 20,000 for researchers and US$ 10,000 for students) necessarily and exclusively for mobility expenses (travel costs, living allowances and travel insurance) for the duration stipulated in the grant contract, as agreed between the institutions.

Applicants must be researchers affiliated to public or private Higher Education or Research Institutions in the State of São Paulo with ongoing FAPESP´s Regular and Thematic research awards, or Young Investigators or RIDC program awards.
