CAPES PrInt: Program for Institutional Internationalization

Since its creation in 2006, UFABC has invested in research and graduate studies based on the spirit of knowledge construction beyond Brazilian borders. Numerous research groups have gained international projection, reflected in high-impact academic-scientific production and the establishment of UFABC as a target for foreign partners.

The Institutional Internationalization Project will allow UFABC to expand its network of international contacts and partnerships. We expect to establish a culture of internationalization at UFABC, which will make the faculty and students converge towards the goal of making our university a global leader in the construction and dissemination of cutting-edge knowledge in the follwing priority research themes:

(1) Biosystems and Biotechnology Tools;
(2) Advances in Nanosciences, Structure of Matter, Quantum Physics and Advanced Materials;
(3) Challenges of sustainability for the 21st century: energy, technology, development and fight against inequality;
(4) Information and Communication Technologies, Complex Systems and Smart Applications.

The full version of the original public call (in Portuguese) is available at the Capes-PrInt webpage.

Main goals

– Foster the construction, implementation and consolidation of strategic plans for internationalization of the institutions contemplated in the areas of knowledge they prioritize;
– Stimulate the formation of international research networks with a view to improving the quality of academic production;
– Expand the actions to support internationalization in graduate courses;
– Promote the mobility of lecturers and students, with emphasis on doctoral students, postdoctoral students, Brazilian lecturers abroad and foreign lecturers in Brazil;
– Foster the transformation of participating institutions into an international environment.

Funding available

– Allowance for overseas work missions, in the context of international cooperation research projects or individual missions;
– Funding for project maintenance for specific actions of research projects;
– Scholarships abroad: Sandwich Doctorate, Senior Visiting Professor, Junior Visiting Professor, Training in short courses or summer/winter schools.
– Scholarships in Brazil: Visiting professor (applicant must be living and working abroad), Young talent with experience abroad (applicant must be living abroad), Postdoctoral researcher with experience abroad (applicant must be living abroad).
