FAPESP selects new São Paulo Schools of Advanced Science Versão em português

Seven schools were selected, which will bring together scientists and students in intense discussions and analysis of advanced topics in various research areas.

FAPESP announces the result of the seventeenth call of proposals for the São Paulo School of Advanced Science (SPSAS), which offers resources for the organization of short courses in advanced research in the different areas of knowledge in the state of São Paulo.

The São Paulo Schools of Advanced Science offer means of disseminating information and ideas in a way that could not be obtained through the common channels of communication, such as scientific publications and presentations at scientific events.

In addition to contributing to the advancement of knowledge and the training of participants, it is expected that the supported events will contribute to give visibility to research, doctoral programs and opportunities for postdoctoral internships in the state of São Paulo, especially candidates from other states and countries.

Scientists with common professional interests will meet for a period of 10 to 14 days, promoting intense discussion and analysis of the most advanced aspects in their fields of research. Initially, the call would select up to five schools, but seven were approved due to the high quality of the proposals.
