As part of the FAPESP (São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration) SPRINT funding program, the research funding organization FAPESP of the state of São Paulo and the WWU Münster once again launched a joint call for proposals to support up to three (3) mobility projects between researchers from the WWU and the state of São Paulo in order to promote research collaboration. The call is open to all disciplines.

The goal is to promote the preparation of joint research projects by funding reciprocal scientific meetings. Subsequently, funding for these research projects should be requested from FAPESP and a funding agency on the German side, such as the German Research Foundation (DFG).

FAPESP will provide up to 10,000 euros per project. The WWU will also contribute up to 10,000 euros per project, whereby 50% of WWU's funding will be provided by the Brazil Centre and 50% shall be co-financed by the researchers with other funds (institute, department, third-party funds or others).

On the Brazilian side, researchers who have an ongoing research project funded by FAPESP are eligible to apply for SPRINT. For more details we recommend to observe items 3.1. and 4.2. of the FAPESP call.

The deadline for submitting proposals closes on 30 January 2023.
