NWO-FAPESP joint Call for Proposals ‘Healthy Ageing’ call

Subsidie aanvragen

Purpose of call

The aim of this call is to strengthen research cooperation between researchers in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, and researchers in the Netherlands by funding joint research projects. The funded projects combined will focus on healthy ageing. The main goal of this call for proposals is to understand the biological determinants of the heterogeneity of the ageing process, developing instruments to allow stratification of target groups, while maximizing the functional capacity, independence, and quality of life of older persons.

Sums available

Different costs can be reimbursed from FAPESP and NWO. Research activities need to be conducted on both sides and the project intellectual contribution is evenly balanced between São Paulo and the Netherlands. Funding and costs must be in accordance with FAPESP norms. The maximum amount of funding that can be applied for per consortium on the Dutch side is € 700.000, resulting in, most likely, granting of 2 projects. The NWO-FAPESP joint call has a programmatic approach, so these projects must be connected to each other. The budget is built up using the following modules:

  • Personnel
  • Material Credit
  • Valorisation/Impact
  • Internationalisation
