The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and BE-BASIC collaborate in Joint Calls for Proposals (JCFP), with the aim of promoting and supporting research projects involving collaboration between scientists working in public or private research or teaching institutions in the State of São Paulo, Brazil and scientists associated to BE-BASIC in the Netherlands.

The research projects help to build up scientific and technological competencies, foster strategic alliances for scientific and technological development, promote the dissemination of knowledge and generate results which potentially could lead to applications with market value in the area(s) of interest to FAPESP and BE-BASIC.

At this moment, this collaboration has resulted in the following approved research projects:
