Cambridge Global Challenges


10 collaborative projects are being funded, involving leading UK and São-Paulo-based bioscience research teams. The joint research will focus on resistance challenges impacting the livelihoods of Brazilian farmers and will address a range of important issues, from bovine mastitis and poultry productivity to pests of sugarcane and citrus trees.

A joint total of over £1 million has been awarded by BBSRC and FAPESP, whereby BBSRC will support project costs for the UK-based researchers, whilst FAPESP will support project costs for their São-Paulo-based partners.


For the complete list of research proposals funded under this scheme see the BBSRC website.
