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

The FAPESP / Brazil-Newton Researcher Links (BNRL) 2nd Call Workshop 2015 is 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.

Proposals will be accepted in any discipline or multidisciplinary area including from the natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. FAPESP and the British Council will co-fund the workshops.

The workshops must take place between 5th March and 31st August 2016. Up to 40 researchers can take part in each workshop.

Workshops 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.

Workshop coordinators from the State of São Paulo must be or have been principal or co-principal investigators of research projects funded by FAPESP within at least one of the following FAPESP funding lines: Thematic Projects, Young Investigators Award (JP), Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centres (CEPIDs/RIDCs), and Research Partnership for Technological Innovation (PITE).

Applicants should submit a joint proposal before 11th December 2015 to the British Council and FAPESP.
