Members of TU Berlin can submit joint applications with researchers from the state of São Paulo for funding for mobility and cooperation initiatives as part of the SPRINT funding program. The call is open to researchers in all academic chairs. The only condition is that the Brazilian partner is already receiving funding from FAPESP. Approved projects will receive 10,000 euros (5,000 for each partner) from TU Berlin and FAPESP over a twelve-month period.
The start of the funding program has been pushed back as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. TU Berlin and FAPESP will now publish the first call on 26 October 2021. Further information will be available on the website of International Scientific Cooperation from 26 October.
