The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the National Council for the State Funding Agencies (CONFAP) announce the result of a call for proposals to support the exchange in research issued in September 2014 with the Academy of Medical Sciences, the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society of the United Kingdom.

The UK Academies will offer Newton International Fellowships and Newton Advanced Fellowships to the Brazilian research community.

In the State of São Paulo, the call selected proposals for short-term (from 7 days to 6 months) and medium to long term (from 6 months to 36 months) mobility for UK researchers to visit research groups in São Paulo.

FAPESP will also offer an opportunity for young investigators from the UK to start a research career in a university or research institution in the State of São Paulo through its Young Investigator Awards.

The UK Academies, specifically the British Academy, the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society, will offer Newton International Fellowships and Newton Advanced Fellowships to the Brazilian research community, covering the fields of natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, and medical (including clinical and patient-orientated research) sciences.

The British Academy, the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering will also offer mobility grants to the Brazilian research community, covering the fields of natural science
