Travel and venue

Some good reasons to come to Campinas

Campinas is not a touristic city, but it is just 100 km from São Paulo , and has two important universities: Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas and University of Campinas, the venue of this event.

Academics have further reasons to want to visit Campinas. Brazil, and, in particular, the State of São Paulo, is very much interested in attracting young scientific talents as well as established researchers interested in any aspect of the Brazilian environment (e.g., linguistic diversity).

Campinas’ high standard of living and strategic location in the heart of the Southeast makes it a good base for short and long term academic visits. For foreign scholars wishing to spend some time in a Brazilian university, funding from federal and state agencies is not only available but also generous.

The federal Science without Borders program is not focused on the Human and Social Sciences, but applications from the areas represented in this meeting cannot be ruled out because of their strong links with the Natural Sciences. Information on Science without Borders for Foreigners is available here .

In the State of São Paulo opportunities are still more numerous. Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo, the local research funding agency, encourages applications from all knowledge fields. Post-docs should apply for Young Talent fellowhips, whereas senior researchers should apply for Visiting Researcher fellowships.
