Title of Collaborative Activity:

Science without Borders

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Collaboration with the Brazil Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) “Science without Borders” Program - The focus of the CNPq/MCT program is to collaborate with select institutions (both in US and Brazil) to advance both infrastructure and human resources in areas of science, technology and innovation. CNPq priorities under the "Science without Borders" program are to train 75,000 Brazilians in areas of science and technology over the next 4-5 years, particularly in the health sciences and engineering. Training could be both short-term (workshops/conferences) and long term/capacity building (collaborations/joint programs). CNPq would focus on top level Brazilian research institutions to select post-docs for support, but would consider applications from smaller institutions. A Letter of Understanding was established by the CNPq of Brazil and NIH (DHHS) as of September 2011.
