Brazilian-German Collaboration in Global Change Research

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and its partner organisation in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), have developed a new initiative to enhance scientific cooperation in the field of global change research and announce a joint call for Brazilian-German proposals.

The aim of this call is to invite joint Brazilian-German proposals which contribute to the theme: "Land-use Change and Land-use Management under Conditions of Global Change".

The overall aim of this joint funding of projects is to study the ecological and socioeconomic effects of land-use change and land-use management and its interaction with global change. The focus is on land-use changes related to competing demands for the production of food and biofuels in Brazil. Comparative studies in Germany are also invited.

Bilateral proposals within the framework of this call should be submitted to DFG and FAPESP by 15 February 2013.
