CONFAP-UK Academies: Fellowships, Research Mobility, and Young Investigator Awards for UK researchers in Brazil
Brazilian State Funding Agencies, articulated by its National Council (CONFAP), have launched a call for proposals offering support to researchers based in UK Universities and Research Institutions to spend from two weeks to four years working in research in Brazil, in collaboration with local colleagues.
The call offers support for researchers in the UK through:
b) Research Mobility Grants
c) Young Investigator Grants comprising a scholarship plus a research funding grant.
These Newton Fund activities offer an opportunity for UK researchers to develop the strengths and capabilities of their research groups through training, collaboration and reciprocal visits with a partner in some of the best research groups in the Brazil.
The second round of applications is now open and will close on 23 October 2015.
Do you have links with an Early Stage Researcher based in ASEAN, Brazil, China, India, Japan or North America? Then direct them to this scheme. First prize is a free trip to Europe, a one-day science communication workshop and a meeting with European Commission representatives in Brussels, Belgium, and a meeting at a European research institution of their choice! Closing dates are in September but applicants will need to check the information for their region.
