Brazil's National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) and the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) are partnering on an initiative to financially support projects that would "significantly contribute" to innovation in the regulatory sciences, Anivsa said in a 4 September announcement.

Both CNPq -- a government agency that acts to promote science in technology in Brazil -- and Anvisa jointly published on 31 August a public notice requesting the submission of proposed regulatory science projects by 13 October 2012.   

The notice identified 8 lines of regulatory science technologies research that would qualify for funding, including those that would address disease transmission through blood, tissues, cells and organs, with emphasis on endemic and emerging diseases, and the evaluation and validation of the quality of in vitro diagnostic products.
