International Collaboration

This page displays international collaborative research information funded by FAPESP.

In order to encourage the researchers in São Paulo to develop collaborations in research with colleagues from other countries, FAPESP provides several financial instruments to support research.

There are several cooperation partnerships and agreements with funding agencies, research institutions and foreign companies, under which Calls for Proposals are opened in order to select and co-finance collaborative research.

Opportunities are announced in specific calls or by means of SPRINT - São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration, an initiative launched in 2014.
