Collaboration in Brazil

The collaboration in Brazil includes both education and research activities with Brazilian universities, hospitals and institutions. Focus areas are research interaction and innovation and student exchange programmes. 

The majority of the activities with Brazilian collaborators takes place between researchers. Most of the activities are in the fields of odontology, neuroscience, immunology and infectious diseases and psychiatry. There is an extended and more strategic collaboration with Universidade de São Paulo (USP) and the region of Sao Paulo.
