Brazilian scientists and their US counterparts presented new research on themes ranging through Society, New Materials Health, Energy and Climate Change, at the University of California’s Berkeley and Davis centers during a weeklong symposium 17th-21st November.
The California event follows a similar meeting held during October in Washington, also sponsored by the São Paulo Research Foundation. These events bring together top-level scientists from both countries and highlight the opportunities for visiting professorships and other forms of knowledge sharing and career enhancement in Brazil.
