At the Research in Germany booth, representatives of the German Research Foundation (DFG) will provide information and individual consultation on research opportunities such as summer schools, post-graduate and PhD courses, post-doc positions, scientific cooperation as well as fellowships and funding programs.

Together with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the DFG will also promote a Science Lunch at the congress, to be held on July 11th, from 12:35 to 14:20 at Sala São Paulo.

In the event, five researchers from different German institutions will give an insight into the country’s research landscape and present their own research work.
