  • 5. Science without Borders National Development Strategy • Invest in people: development of skills and competences needed to the full insertion in the knowledge-based economy • Focus on the national strategic challenges − Engineering and other technological areas − Strategic areas • Promotion of industrial R,D&I
  • 6. Science without Borders Science Without Borders Program • Boost Brazilian science, technology, innovation and competitiveness through the expansion of international mobility. (100.000 fellowships in 4 years) • Increase the presence of Brazilian researchers and students of various levels in institutions of excellence overseas; Brazilian institutions will open similar opportunities for foreign scientists and students; • Increase the innovative expertise of personnel from the technological industries; • Attract young scientific talents and highly qualified researchers to work in Brazil.
  • 7. Science without Borders Priority Areas •Engineering and other technological areas; •Natural Sciences •Health and Biomedical Sciences ; •Computing and Information Technology; •Aerospace; •Pharmaceuticals; •Sustainable Agricultural Production; •Oil and gas; •Nuclear Energy •Renewable Energy; •Minerals; •Biotechnology; •Nanotechnology and New Materials; •Technology for prevention and mitigation of natural disasters; •Biodiversity and bioprospection; •Marine Sciences; •Technologies for the green economy; •New technologies for constructive engineering; •Capacity building for technical personnel.

  • 10. Science without Borders Brazilians going abroad • Support the travel and scholarships for living and installation expenses and health insurance; • Undergraduate students for 6 months, or up to 12 months if an internship in laboratory or in industry is included; • Support for doctoral degrees abroad, either in complete PhD programs or in 12 months “sandwich”stayssandwich”stays; • Postdoctoral fellowships: For candidates with a doctorate, and accepted in leading international institutions abroad. Minimum of 6 months and maximum of 24 months. • Sabbatical fellowships for senior researchers
  • 11. Science without Borders Strategies (1) • Estimulation of spontaneous demand from Brazilian students and researchers: – SWG fellowships to Scientific Initiation Programs – SWE fellowships to Post-graduate programs – Regular calls for GDE, PDE and ESN fellowships – Highly selective criteria – Stimulate bilateral agreements between Brazilian and foreign universities
  • 12. Science without Borders Strategies (2) • Agreements with Institutions and Universities: – Define nr of places, tuition/bench fees, selection processes – Induced national calls for applications – Identify ways to facilitate the sending of Brazilian students to American Universities (lodging, visas, etc..) – Support for prior development of language skills
  • 13. Science without Borders Young talents to Brazil (Brazilian or foreigners) • Payment of fellowship and resources to 2 to 3 years of work in Brazil with a local group; • The host research group receives funds, as a bench fee; • International calls of proposals in leading international journals. • Up to 200 young researchers per year.
  • 14. Science without Borders Special Visiting Researchers (Brazilian or foreigners) • Senior researchers to perform joint projects with research groups in Brazil and to work in Brazil for one or two months every year; • Doctoral students and post doctoral personnel will be supported to work in the project; • Very attractive fellowship + funding for the local laboratory; • Distinct ways of collaborating with Brazilian scientists may be proposed.
