Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) selected for funding for a period of up to eleven years

Multidisciplinary, high impact Science [2013-2024]: Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers – RIDC

Outro formato Ano: 2013, 2016

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) supports, since May 2013, 17 Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) selected for funding for a period of up to eleven years, subject to continuation reviews on years 2, 4 and 7. Each RIDC is expected to establish a hub of excellent research in its focus area. In addition, each RIDC must actively seek out and develop opportunities to have its research results contribute to commercially and/or socially relevant high-impact applications, as well as contributing to education and dissemination of knowledge. Funding for the 17 RIDCs will come from FAPESP and the host institutions (funding faculty, technicians, support personnel, and infrastructure). It is estimated that for the eleven-year duration of the program, the total funding for the 17 centers will be more than US$ 680 million, with US$ 370 million from FAPESP and US$ 310 million in salaries from the host institutions. Additional funding will be obtained by each center from industry and government organizations.
