The workshop is open to all academic and service staff interested in finding out about opportunities in Brazil.

 International partnerships with Brazil: an overview

Brazil has been investing 0.8% of its GDP for research and innovation, in addition to funding the very ambitious mobility programme “Science without Borders”. State funding agencies, such as FAPESP and FAPERJ, are also big funders of international collaborations. Brazil’s scientific output has greatly increased in the past five years, with many excellent groups producing outstanding research. The UK government launched the Newton Fund programme in 2014, to fund scientific international collaborations with 15 countries, including Brazil and other Latin American countries.

In this workshop, Tania Lima will present an overview of the research landscape, funding programmes, both from Brazil and the UK, and discuss pathways to engage with these funding possibilities. Click here for Tania’s profile.
