The UFRJ Science Park signed a partnership agreement with TusPark, a technology park from China. The aim is to both stimulate and support the internationalization of technology-based companies located in the two innovative environments, particularly the small and medium-sized companies, as well as the UFRJ Park itself. Directly linked to the University of Tsinghua, TusPark is one of the largest parks of the world, concerning size and number of resident companies, with more than six thousand companies installed.
The agreement will allow the Brazilian resident companies to develop activities in China and vice versa. Plus, it will also provide the companies full support from the local teams of both innovative environments for prospection, networking and legal issues.
The agreement is an enhancement in the relationship that the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro already has with the University of Tsinghua through COPPE. This has allowed the exchange of experiences between researchers, joint publications and technology development.
