To support the development of long-term research collaborations the University of Birmingham has established pump-priming funds with FAPESP and FAPERJ, and provides funding for academic workshops to support new partnerships.
Funding call with FAPESP for 2016/17 now closed. Details on future funding calls will be published here in due course.
The joint pump-priming research fund between the Universities of Birmingham, Nottingham, and FAPESP offers the opportunity to consolidate and foster nascent relationships that facilitate long-term collaborative ties. Proposals are now invited across all academic disciplines.
Whilst tripartite applications are preferred, bipartite applications involving colleagues from the University of Birmingham and Brazilian, FAPESP-eligible colleagues will also be considered. Read full details about the call, including eligibility, finance and deadlines.
