The Swedish company Saab, together with “Plano Brasil Maior” and “Ciência sem fronteiras” initiatives, will contribute with more than 100 research scholarships in Sweden for Brazilians seeking their PhDs, post-doctorate and senior researchers, during the next three years.
The research scholarship program will be coordinated by the Swedish Brazilian Research & Innovation Center (CISB) that was recently opened in São Bernardo do Campo and is a Saab initiative to connect industries, the academic world and Swedish and Brazilian government-owned institutions.

Industrial involvement in CISB will ensure that research scholarships have a clear innovation focus thereby contributing to strengthen both nations’ industrial bases. The close cooperation between academia, industry and public institutions (triple helix) to find new innovation challenges is a trademark of both CISB and the Swedish Innovation System.
“We expect that these scholarships are the cornerstones that will enhance and establish a long-term scientific and technology cooperation between Swedish and Brazilian institutions,” said Håkan Buskhe, Saab CEO.
