Research and Funding Opportunities
Pump-priming call opens: 18 September 2017
Partnership Building Workshop, FAPESP Headquarters, São Paulo (invite only): 4-6 October 2017
BBSRC in the UK and the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) in Brazil are pleased to pre-announce a joint Newton Fund call for collaborative research proposals focussing on Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) and insect pest resistance in agriculture, opening in September 2017. BBSRC has up to £2.5 million to commit to this call with a matched research contribution funded by FAPESP. An opportunity is now available to express interest in attending a partnering workshop to be held at FAPESP in São Paulo, Brazil, on 4-6 October 2017.
The call for proposals and FAPESP specific guidelines for SP researchers will be launched in early September (before the workshop takes place) and will close in early December to allow time for both workshop and non-workshop participants to develop pump-priming proposals in collaboration with Brazilian partners. Attendance at the workshop is not mandatory to apply to the call.
Although this call is being managed by BBSRC, we would welcome any UK eligible researchers who are eligible for RCUK funding to consider how they might address the aims of the call.
