42nd ANPOCS Annual Meeting
At the annual meeting of the Brazilian National Association of Postgraduate Studies and Research in Social Sciences, the Research in Germany initiative is organising a lunch session and an information stand to make social scientists aware of the research and funding opportunities available in Germany.
Latin America’s scientific potential is constantly growing, and the region is becoming increasingly significant for science. Interest in cooperation with research partners in this region is growing considerably among German researchers. This applies particularly to the countries of Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Columbia, whose scientific systems are very advanced.
São Paulo is an important research and economic location, and the 2011 establishment of the DFG’s Latin American office there under the auspices of the DWIH (German House of Science and Innovation) will enable its strategic development to be effectively expanded and developed further.
The cooperation between partner organisations facilitates the initiation and execution of joint and co-funded research projects in all scientific fields.
