About the I EU-Brazil ICT Cooperation Workshop

In Sep 8-9 2009, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) and The Ministy of Foreign Affairs (MRE) of Brazil, jointly with the European Comission Delegation in Brazil and the DG Connect Unit of the European Comission, in partnership with USP, the University of Brasilia (UNB) and the National Education and Research Network (RNP), promoted the I EU-Brazil Cooperation Workshop in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), the EUBR 2009. This workshop had the goal to promote initiaves for joint research between Brazil and Europe. The discussions allowed the identification of common research topics between the two regions and were fundamental to define details of the First Joint Call for Research Cooperation between the European Union and Brazil in ICT, which was launched in 2010 and had five approved projects. In 2011, a second call was launched and had four approved projects.
