Date:9/16/2009

King's College London has signed a unique agreement with the Fundao de Amparo Pesquisa do Estado de So Paulo (FAPESP), the State of So Paulo Research Foundation, Brazil. With this agreement King's has become FAPESP's first and only university partner in the UK.

The two institutions have agreed to encourage and support more scientific cooperation between King's and researchers working at institutions in the State of So Paulo. The cooperation agreement spans all areas of knowledge, covering Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, Exact Sciences and Earth Sciences, Engineering, Agrarian Sciences, Applied Social Sciences, Human Sciences, Linguistics and Literature & Arts.

It aims to encourage the development of joint research projects, which may include the exchange of researchers and post-graduate students. The two institutions will jointly select projects from proposals submitted by researchers from either King's or researchers in the State of So Paulo.

Keith Hoggart, Vice Principal (Arts & Sciences) and External Affairs, comments: 'I am delighted that FAPESP has chosen King's as a partner for international research projects. Brazil is a country of great importance to King's and we are excited to be the first university to sign such an agreement with FAPESP. I am sure today marks the beginning of a great collaboration that will foster strong research relationships and will lead to high-quality research output across all areas of knowledge.'

In its 47 years of operation, FAPESP has awarded more than 45 thousand scholarships and 35 thousand financial awards to research. In 2008 FAPESP invested 74 million in fellowships and 136 millions in research awards. The foundation supports research in all fields of knowledge and has also special programs in Bioenergy, Climate Change, Biodiversity, Neurosciences and Advanced Internet. The balance of these years of continuous investment clearly shows that the Foundation has made a decisive
