FAPESP Researcher Exchange Scheme

The ATN has partnered with one of Brazil's leading research bodies, the State of São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) to promote collaboration between researchers from ATN universities in Australia and researchers from the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, through the funding of joint research projects. 

The foundation provides grants through the São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration (SPRINT) to support the research, education and innovation of both private and public institutions in São Paulo.
