Partnership between CNPq and CISB

CISB has strong partnership with CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) since 2012. Through this partnership, Saab AB, one of CISB’s members, offered post-graduate scholarships focused on the aeronautical sector.

In March, 2018, a new agreement was signed between the institutions, starting a new chapter for this partnership history. The new working plan will take 5 year and will offer 10 scholarships per year. 

Since 2012, it was already opened 6 joint calls between CISB, CNPq and Saab AB, having received more than 363 projects applications. 38 scholarships in Sweden have been awarded to researchers from 18 universities and covering 9 regions of Brazil. 24 of these scholarships were for post doctorate and 14 for sandwich-doctorate. In Sweden, there are 8 universities and research institutes which have received the visiting researchers. The 6th joint call CNPq-CISB-Saab was closed on 9 March. More information about the next call will be released soon.

In addition to having the chance to develop their projects at universities of excellence in Sweden, the researchers were also able to participate in joint research projects with Saab AB, acquiring international experience and the university-industry relationship, one of the characteristics that guarantee the success of the Swedish innovation system.

Upon returning to Brazil, researchers can be considered "ambassadors" of collaboration with Sweden. In addition to an impressive academic result, with a total of 71 scientific publications in partnership with the Swedes, the researchers continue their collaboration through initiatives such as STINT-CAPES, Special Visiting Professor CNPq, partnership between research laboratories of the two countries, support in the development of cooperation agreements between universities, among others. Among the 34 researchers, 18 continued their research projects initially approved with activities in both countries.
