Research funding:

BBSRC-Brazil (FAPESP) joint funding of research

RCUK-FAPESP memorandum of understanding

Call status: Open
Application deadline: as per next responsive mode

Research Councils UK (RCUK) and FAPESP, the State of Säo Paulo Research Foundation, have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to welcome, encourage and support applications that may cut across their national boundaries and involve international collaborative teams.

The MoU provides for a 'Lead Agency Agreement' whereby the relevant UK Research Council will receive and assess collaborative proposals from eligible institutions on behalf of both organisations. FAPESP nominated experts will be involved with the peer review and decision making processes throughout. For further information see the RCUK-FAPESP MoU (see external links).

BBSRC-FAPESP applications

BBSRC will accept applications under the terms of the MoU for responsive mode grants at any time (see application deadlines in related links).


How to apply

Applications are processed alongside other responsive mode applications. Application deadlines are therefore the same as responsive mode applications. Responsive mode deadlines can be found on our 'Apply for funding' page (see related links).
