The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) announce the result of a call for scientific cooperation through their programs BIOTA and Dimensions of Biodiversity, issued in December, 2013.

As expected in the call for proposals, two US-São Paulo Collaborative Research Project awards will be funded at a level of up to $2,000,000 by FAPESP, to the researchers in São Paulo State and at a level of up to $2,000,000 by NSF to the U.S. researchers.

The call for proposal is based in a broader call published annually by the NSF Dimensions of Biodiversity’s Program, which invites the participation of U.S. researchers to apply for NSF’s regular funding or co-funding opportunities under NSF agreements with FAPESP and other agencies.
