Co-funded support for research projects involving international collaboration between the UK and Brazil in any areas of science within the remits of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the State of Säo Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the State of Säo Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) have agreed a joint Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to co-fund and support collaborative research projects by UK/Brazilian partnerships.

The MoU aims to encourage and support collaborative projects that cut across national boundaries and involve international collaborative teams. Both agencies are charged with fostering and supporting academic research for their respective nations and recognise that the best research in all countries may be delivered by working with the best researchers internationally.

The research proposals can be in any area of science within both of the BBSRC and FAPESP remits – principally food security, bioenergy and industrial biotechnology.
