      • Support for prior development of language skills

    Young talents to brazil brazilian or foreigners
    Young talents to Brazil(Brazilian or foreigners)

    • Payment of fellowship and resources to 2 to 3 years of work in Brazil with a local group;

    • The host research group receives funds, as a bench fee;

    • International calls of proposals in leading international journals.

    • Up to 200 young researchers per year.

    S pecial visiting researchers brazilian or foreigners
    Special Visiting Researchers(Brazilian or foreigners)

    • Senior researchers to perform joint projects with research groups in Brazil and to work in Brazil for one or two months every year;

    • Doctoral students and post doctoral personnel will be supported to work in the project;

    • Very attractive fellowship + funding for the local laboratory;

    • Distinct ways of collaborating with Brazilian scientists may be proposed.
