Call with South Korean funding agency has selected proposals Versão em português

FAPESP and NRF will support three projects for the development of joint scientific collaborations between São Paulo state and South Korean teams.

FAPESP announces the results of call for proposals with South Korea’s National Research Foundation (NRF) issued in 2021. The call selected three projects that will enable research collaborations between investigators associated with higher education and research institutions from São Paulo state, on one hand, and South Korea, on the other.

The call covered all areas of knowledge and consisted in the second science funding opportunity within the scope of the FAPESP-NRF cooperation agreement, signed in 2019.

The São Paulo state-based counterpart of each approved project will receive support from FAPESP through its Regular Research Grant scheme, while the funding for the projects’ South-Korean counterpart is due to NRF.
