The liaison office of Freie Universitšt Berlin in S„o Paulo has entered into an agreement to fund research projects together with the S„o Paulo Research Foundation (FundaÁ„o de Amparo ŗ Pesquisa do Estado de S„o Paulo, FAPESP), one of the biggest funding bodies in Brazil. They have announced a joint call for proposals within the "SPRINT" (S„o Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration) program in which both institutions will provide funding worth a maximum of 10,000 euros for up to three international research projects.
The program offers researchers from Freie Universitšt Berlin the opportunity to collaborate with researchers from universities or institutions in the State of S„o Paulo by carrying out reciprocal visits or workshops to develop a research project. The project will then be submitted to FAPESP as well as a corresponding funding organization in Germany such as the German Research Foundation (DFG). This seed funding, which is designed to promote a new generation of research projects between Freie Universitšt Berlin and S„o Paulo, will only be used to cover mobility costs. The deadline for submitting projects is January 30, 2023.
