The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and Victoria University (VU) signed a cooperation agreement for research in December 2014. The goal is to implement scientific and technological cooperation between researchers from the university and from the State of São Paulo through the funding of joint research projects. Each party will contribute up to AUD 160,000 during the life of the agreement (five years) for funding the projects.
As the first action to promote this collaboration, FAPESP and VU are making a public call for proposals for the exchange of researchers. Applicants from VU and an eligible organization in the State of São Paulo can each request AUD $10,000.00 per joint proposal per year. More information on the public call website.
