The Ohio State University Brazil Gateway invites faculty, students, scholars and staff to attend the IV CAPES Print Workshop with Brazilian universities at The Ohio State University on May 23-24 at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center.

The Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES) is a Brazilian Ministry of Education research funding agency and the Program for the Internationalization of Higher Education (PrInt) funds graduate students, faculty mobility opportunities and research networks.

The Brazil Gateway hosted the I CAPES PrInt Workshop in 2020 with four virtual workshops for each Brazilian partner to explain about the university’s specific research themes and goals with PrInt funding. The II CAPES PrInt Workshop in 2021 had six Brazilian partner universities in a two-day virtual event that included Ohio State and Brazilian faculty whose research was supported by PrInt. The III CAPES PrInt in 2022 highlighted the work of four Brazilian PhD visiting scholars at Ohio State with the support of PrInt funding.

With the end of the CAPES PrInt program in October 2024, the last workshop will be in person. Representatives from Brazilian universities will share a summary of CAPES PrInt funding, specific collaborations with Ohio State and future initiatives and plans beyond CAPES PrInt for the internationalization of their programs.

Registration will close at 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 7, and we will be unable to accept late registrations. Lunch will be provided on both days.

Register now.
