Research Support Program

(Last updated in: 11/23/2016 - 5:31pm)

The Faculty Research and Academic Output Support Program (ProPesquisa) was implemented at the FGV/EBAPE in 2000, in a trailblazing initiative that broke fresh ground in Brazil through its innovative conceptualization and operationalization.  Since then, it has been having positive effects on the scientific output of the FGV/EBAPE faculty, steadily building up its credibility through its strict criteria and evaluation processes for papers published by its professors and awarding research grants.

Designed to boost the research and publication activities of the FGF/EBAPE faculty, it allocates a specific amount of funding each year to research projects and incentives awarded to professors for their academic papers.  It also pursues greater faculty engagement in research activities in order to produce new evidence, explore new approaches and develop new methods that, on the bottom line, will be used to underpin teaching activities in greater depth that are more up-to-date and critical.
