Local Funding

In May 2018, the European Commission, the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Brazilian Funding agencies have signed an administrative arrangement on mechanisms to support EU-Brazil cooperation activities in research and innovation. The new administrative arrangement extends the current co-funding, formerly available only to eight Brazilian states, to the entire country. It also outlines the necessary operational steps for launching coordinated calls and for twinning of projects in areas of common interest. In force since 2007, the EU and Brazil Science & Technology Agreement has led to intensive collaboration activities in research and innovation with more than 350 common projects. Main areas for cooperation include marine research, information and communication technologies, health, transport and environmental research.
