4. Brazil in CASAGRAS2: activities and results The University of São Paulo (USP) has launched the Innovation Olympic Games and Prof. Maristela Basso has proposed the development of the project Modelo de Regulamentação Jurídica e Gestão da Internet das Coisas (IoT) - Model for IoT juridic regulation and governance. It is exactly at this point that Juridical and Social Sciences may provide their contribution. Our intent is to offer a product that allows for the integration the technological advance with minimal ethical patterns of social coexistence and, in addition, for the respect of citizens guarantees and fundamental rights, in a concentrated or diffused way. Also for this reason we have associated to the CASAGRAS2 work that, in Brazil, is coordinated by Prof. José Amazonas and Escola Politécnica of USP, providing juridical consultancy and advice.
