NEWTON FUND

NEWTON FUND

The Newton Fund is part of the UK’s official development assistance. Its aim is to develop science and innovation partnerships that promote the economic development and welfare of partner countries.

Respecting the ODA criteria, the fund expects to invest £375 million (£75 million per year, for five years, from 2014/15) in several programs that will cover complete research and mobility projects and research training in 15 countries. Partner institutions in those countries will also fund the selected research projects. The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) is a partner in Brazil.

The Newton Fund is implemented by delivery partners such as RCUK, the British Council, the UK Academies, Innovate UK, the Royal Society and Met Office. Wishing to launch funding opportunities for researchers in the State of São Paulo, FAPESP has stablished cooperation agreements with some of these institutions, as described below, sometimes including Confap in the Brazilian side.
