FAPESP and British Council select research workshops

Three proposals for workshops to be organized in São Paulo were selected in call for proposals

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the British Council, with the Newton Fund, announce the result of a call for proposals to support the organization of research workshops issued in April.

The FAPESP / Brazil-Newton Researcher Links (BNRL) Workshop 2015 call for proposals was designed to provide financial support to bring together a UK/São Paulo State cohort of early career researchers to take part in a workshop focusing on building links for future collaboration and enhancing the researchers’ career opportunities.

Three proposals were selected in São Paulo and will be coordinated by two leading researchers: one from a UK institution, one working in a higher education or research institution in the State of São Paulo.

Selected proposals in São Paulo:
