The Division of Research at Texas A&M University is a strong supporter of international collaborations between Texas A&M faculty and researchers at international institutions. The Division has facilitated agreements to offer faculty a variety of opportunities for international research collaborations:
Texas A&M and Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES), began a collaborative Research Grant program in 2013. This program seeks to facilitate global faculty-to-faculty collaboration and further research ties between the two countries that yield preliminary results and enable joint applications for extramural funded programs. This program is open to tenured or tenure-track faculty at Texas A&M in all areas that are mutually supported by CAPES and Texas A&M.
Texas A&M and Mexico's CONACYT began a Collaborative Research Grant Program in 2001. This competitive, peer-reviewed program advances inter-institutional cooperation in science, technology, and scholarly activities through the complementary efforts of scientists and scholars from Texas A&M and Mexican institutions.
To date the program has funded nearly 200 joint research teams and garnered over $5 million in funding.
