Science Park starts to integrate the International Investigation Center of the Atlantic Ocean


The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro signed a memorandum of understanding with the  Atlantic International Research Centre – AIR Centre, a project that aims to foster new types of knowledge about climate changes and issues related to the Atlantic Ocean, connecting deep water technologies to space technologies through global cooperation. The implementation of the partnership has been carried out by the UFRJ Science Park and by the COPPE Laboratory of Computational Methods (LAMCE/COPPE).
The agreement includes the installation of a reference unit of the Air Centre at the Science Park. This will help identify scientific and technological areas relevant to both parties that target regional priorities and global challenges, because the scientific agenda of the Air Centre is aligned with the Sustainable Development Objectives drawn by the United Nations.
