Operations in Brazil
The Swedish-Brazilian Research and Innovation Centre (CISB)
The network consists of higher education institutions and research institutes in Sweden and Brazil. The overall aim is to facilitate, expand and strengthen collaborations and contacts within research and innovation between Sweden and Brazil in the fields of Sustainable Energy, Defence & Security, Transport & Logistics, Urban Development and Aeronautics.
The network was initiated by Saab, which also funds most of the activities carried out within the framework of CISB.
Among other things, CISB has been a vital support in connection with the student recruitment under the Brazilian scholarship programme Science without Borders. Furthermore, CISB has provided scholarships for doctoral students from Brazil to study in Sweden.
Coimbra Network of Brazilian Universities (GCUB)
The network consists of the top higher education institutions in Brazil, as well as a few non-Brazilian partners. The network aims to develop and discuss international challenges for Brazilian higher education institutions, to increase collaboration between Brazilian and international universities. This includes opportunities to develop partnerships with new Brazilian higher education institutions, as well as specific research collaborations where GCUB can serve as a coordinator.
