São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP)

The University of Surrey works closely with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) to facilitate mobility and research collaborations between staff at the University of Surrey and in the State of São Paulo, Brazil.

Surrey’s partnership with FAPESP includes involvement in the recent SPRINT Call for Proposals - 3rd Edition/2016, the main points of which are highlighted below: 


  • The call invited collaborators to apply for funds for travel and subsistence expenses in relation to a research project already funded by FAPESP, from any academic discipline.
  • The maximum amount available is up to £6,000 from the

University of Surrey and matched funds from FAPESP for the São Paulo collaborator.

  • The maximum duration of each project is 2 years.
  • Results are due to be announced on 27th January 2017.

Further information on the SPRINT calls can be found on the FAPESP website.
