br.BIO.fr promoted in 2014 at Fiocruz in Rio de Janeiro the 2nd French-Brazilian symposium on biosciences. Two days of meeting and discussion among high level researchers working in projects between Brazil and France in the field of life sciences.
Our goal to promote bilateral research was fulfilled with great lectures and visits to research centers pinpointing the certainty that Brazil and France colaborations will be fruitfull for high quality science.
Young researchers, group leaders, and companies who performed or supported research which involved Brazilian and French personnel and funding shared experience, results and strategies. The chalenges faced by students during their stay abroad was also a topic.
In the following years our mission is to continue to promote bilateral funded and performed research between Brazil and France, and to publicize the opportunities and results of French-Brazilian initiatives on life sciences research.
