EU Brazil collaboration

Europe-LAC countries collaboration opportunities

There are numerous opportunities for travel and research collaboration between Europe and Brazil / Latin America and the Caribbean. Read more below.

Short- and long-term mobility of researchers both ways is an important driver of the EU-Brazil and EU-LAC research and innovation partnerships.

Individual researchers can take part in mobility programmes under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions scheme (MSCA). Researchers from Latin America and the Caribbean may also apply for the European Research Council (ERC) grants, which are for the most ambitious and highest quality researchers.

Additional opportunities open to researchers from Argentina, Brazil and Mexico: Argentinian, Brazilian and Mexican authorities signed implementing arrangements with the European Commission to allow (postdoctoral) researchers to temporarily join research teams run by ERC-grantees to conduct frontier research activities in Europe.

=> read the short guides we prepared for LAC researchers and institutions, and discover how you can benefit from MSCA and ERC.

Many other institutions and agencies from EU member states and associated countries, third countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and other LAC countries as well as international foundations also fund researchers mobility.

To support your mobility projects, every two months we highlight around 100 schemes to support researcher collaboration, exchange, or mobility in our list of funding opportunities. These schemes are available on EURAXESS Funding database and in our regular Flashnotes. Register to receive our automatic notifications.



Stay up to date with our EURAXESS Brazil / LAC Newsletter. Read our country briefings, hot topics, in focus interviews on research and innovation. Receive information related to research mobility, cooperation, funding, jobs, and more. Browse old issues or read the most recent ones!
