The 2nd INCOBRA Scoping Workshop has been organized by FAPESP, FFG, FINEP and CONFAP on 26-27 March 2018 at the FAPESP’s premises in Sao Paulo with participation of 5 Joint Programming Initiatives from Europe and 3 Federal and 8 State Funding Agencies as well as CONFAP from Brazil.

The goal of the workshop was to stimulate the discussion on how to align and harmonize their R&I funding priorities, policies, programmes and instruments bilaterally as well as aligning with relevant EU Programmes (such as H2020) and transnational initiatives, such as Joint Programing Initiatives and ERA-NET Cofund actions.

This workshop was built upon the outcomes of the 1st workshop, organized on 21 November 2016 in Brussels titled “JPIs on the Global Stage: Opportunities for International Cooperation”
