Brazil Initiative

The SFIC plenary decided in its meeting on 1 October to launch a SFIC initiative on Brazil.

The concept paper adopted during the plenary outlines the first steps:

  • Collect information on EU/MS/AC S&T activities towards and with Brazil, including mobility schemes in collaboration with the network of science counsellors in Brazil.
  • Organise in 2013 a workshop to showcase good practices of cooperation models. Synergies and collaboration with FP7 INCO projects targeting Brazil will be sought.
  • Analyse the variety of on-going successful cooperation activities and identifying where overlaps exist. Recommend areas where there is potential for a more coordinated European approach vis-à-vis Brazil which would add value to existing successful cooperation activities.
