Professor Robert Elliot is the College of Social Sciences (CoSS) contact for a new venture which will see academics from the University of Birmingham and the University of Nottingham working with a Research Foundation in Rio de Janeiro (Fundação Carlos Chagas Filho de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (FAPERJ)) to facilitate academic cooperation.
The first initiative under this cooperative agreement is to help cross-continent research collaborations in the sciences, social sciences and humanities.
Academics from the institutions involved will be submitting research proposals for a range of activities including facilitating original research and workshop events, with the ultimate purpose being to develop a collaboration that has the potential further support joint activity between the participants in Brazil and the UK.
Birmingham academics can find out more about the call for research proposals via the intranet.
If you have any queries, please contact our Brazil link, Professor Rob Elliot; firstname.lastname@example.org.
