Strengthening international collaboration
New contract between FAU and state funding agency for research and development in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
Prestigious representatives from Brazilian universities, funding institutions and technology parks visited FAU and the Medical Valley on 20 July 2018. Those involved are keen to strengthen international collaboration, in particular between the Central Institute of Healthcare Engineering at FAU, ZiMT for short, and the partner region in Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil. A contract was signed for this purpose by Prof. Dr. Günter Leugering, FAU Vice President Research, and Odir Antônio Dellagostin, President of the state funding agency for research and development in Rio Grande do Sul (FAPERGS). The contract stipulates that FAPERGS is to fund guest professorships for medical engineering at FAU from 2019 to 2023. Professors at FAU who are interested in collaboration should approach ZiMT.
