Joint Brazilian-Swedish Research Collaboration
Please note the deadline for application has passed.
The next call will be published during spring 2019.
Below you’ll find information from the last call.
The aim of Joint Brazilian-Swedish Research Collaboration is to strengthen Swedish research and higher education by developing and establishing international partnerships. The programme supports projects of high scientific quality which are clearly contributing to the activities of participating institutions.
Applicants should have obtained their PhD as well as be employed and active at a Swedish university. Projects may last for up to three years. The proposed project must encompass at least one Swedish and at least one Brazilian party. In addition to the application to STINT a parallel application is to be submitted by the Brazilian party to the Coordenação de Aperfeicoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES). Applicants may have on-going projects in the Initiation Grants programme, but otherwise there must not be any on-going STINT projects.
The ideal partnership project will have activities encompassing research as well as higher education, although STINT also accepts pure research partnerships. It is of particular importance for young researchers and doctoral students to participate in the exchanges. In this programme, STINT wants to encourage new collaborative patterns and will not prioritise long-standing partnerships. The partnership must be balanced, i.e. the benefits and the personnel exchange should not be primarily in one direction.
Applications will be assessed by experts, focusing on how the proposed international partnership fulfils the following three criteria: 1) contribution to the institutions’ internationalisation, 2) scientific quality and novelty and 3) planning and support. Please note that only scientific results from the last five years are taken into consideration for the assessment. The final result depends on a joint STINT-CAPES decision.
This call closes 15:00 CET, October 4th, 2018.
