Launch of new Brazilian internationalisation programme: ‘More science, more development’

‘More Science, More Development’ is the successor programme to ‘Ciência sem Fronteiras’ (CsF), the Brazilian Government-funded initiative which saw 101,000 Brazilian students study at overseas universities (11,000 of these at UK institutions).

Due to launch in August 2017, the new programme will have substantially different characteristics to CsF and will centre around the internationalisation of Brazilian universities through strategic partnerships with overseas institutions.

This scheme will operate through a system of block grants (to be awarded directly to Brazilian universities) rather than directly funding scholarships for Brazilian students.

UK universities are advised to refer to details in this information note around the new programme and to note recommended actions.
