Staff Ambassadors Brazil

Meet our Staff Ambassadors Brazil!

ATTP strategic partners in Brazil are Universidade de São Paulo (USP) and Universidade Federal de São Paulo in São Paulo (UNIFESP), and Universidade Federal de Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) and Pontificia Universidade Católica de Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS) in Porto Alegre. Three researchers, each of whom were granted a Science without Borders Special Visiting Researcher grant to spend 1-3 months per year in Brazil, are responsible for managing the relations with these four Brazilian partners.
