CNPq – Visit to The Conselho Nacional de Pesquisa – CIBS on the Road – Brasília, March 7 to 9, 2013

James and Biorn were invited to visit Marcos Formiga, who heads the Coordenação Geral de Cooperação Internacional at CNPq, along with members of his senior management team.  We had a lively discussion on the opportunities and challenges of President Dilma’s Ciências sem Fronteiras (CsF) program, in which they are playing a lead role in carrying out its implementation. At the end, the group agreed that transforming academic research into practical innovation was one of the key goals of the CsF program that deserved much greater attention.
