FAPESP and CNR signed, in July of 2014, a Cooperation Agreement to promote and strengthen collaboration between researchers from the state of São Paulo and Italy.
Under the scope of this Agreement, FAPESP and CNR launch this Call for Proposals of research projects in Agricultural Sciences, Physics and Medical Genetics, jointly conceived and to be jointly implemented by researchers from institutions in the state of São Paulo and Italy.
