The State of São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), and the BE-Basic Consortium, from the Netherlands, announce the result of the third call for proposals according to the cooperation agreement between the institutions.

The aim is to promote and support research projects involving the collaboration between scientists working in the State of São Paulo, Brazil 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 commercial value in the areas of interest to FAPESP through its BIOEN Program and BE-Basic.
