Warwick researchers win funding to develop international research collaborations

Warwick is committed to supporting our academic colleagues to build and develop international collaborations that will strengthen their research.

We have a long standing agreement with FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation) which is the state funding agency for São Paulo, Brazil, to jointly fund research projects between researchers from the University of Warwick and from the State of São Paulo. Through this agreement, Warwick researchers are able to apply to the SPRINT (São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration) funding call.

In the latest round of SPRINT, three of our academics, alongside their colleagues in Brazil, have won funding from the Warwick-FAPESP Joint Fund;

  • Dr. Stephen Jackson, School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick/ Dr Luciana Rossini Pinto, Centro de Cana, Instituto Agronomico de Campinas (IAC)
  • Dr. Joao Porto de Albuquerque, Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, University of Warwick/ Dr. Eduardo Mario Mendiondo, University of São Paulo
  • Professor Richard Walton, Chemistry, University of Warwick/ Professor Paulo C de Sousa Filho, Instituto de Quimica

Every year we also invite applications to our International Partnership Fund, designed to support the development of new and early stage collaborations with leading universities and research institutes around the world. Eight academics have recently received awards to work collaboratively in Brazil, China (including Hong Kong), Colombia, India, Indonesia and Singapore.

  • Dr. Guy Barker, School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick/ Dr. Irnia Nurika, University of Brawijaya, Indonesia
