Germany - São Paulo Research Program selects academic exchange proposals in any area of scientific knowledge.

FAPESP announces the launch of a new call for proposals with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for the Germany - São Paulo Research Program (PROPASP), which aims to implement scientific and technological cooperation in all areas of scientific knowledge.

For FAPESP, the call is open to researchers from the State of São Paulo who are currently in receipt of a FAPESP grant within the following support opportunities: Regular Research Grant (APR; except mobility grants), Thematic Project, Young Investigator Grant, Initial Projects (Pi), Generation Project, Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (CEPID), Engineering/Applied Research Centers (CPE/CPA), Public Education Research Program, Research in Public Policies Program (PPPP), and Research Partnership for Technological Innovation Program (PITE). Co-Principal Investigators of ongoing Thematic Project, CEPID, CPE/CPA and PITE are also eligible to apply.

For DAAD, the proposal must be submitted by the German project leader and the team must include young academics. Graduates, doctoral candidates, doctorate holders, professors, lecturers can be part of the German research team.

Each project will be supported for up to two initial years with the possibility to prolong the financing for up to two more years by submitting a complementary proposal through a new call to be timely issued by FAPESP and DAAD – resulting in a potential total funding period of maximum four years. Closing date for proposal submission is June 10, 2024.

Post-doctoral and doctoral fellows will be permitted to participate in selected exchange missions, in addition to team researchers. On the DAAD side, the participation of master's students will also be allowed.

FAPESP will provide funding of up to a maximum of €18.000,00 per proposal per year and DAAD will provide funding of up to €18.000,00 per proposal per year for the duration of the grant to cover research-related mobility expenses.
