- Released on Nov 08, 2010
On November 4 to 7 Texas A&M received a visit from leading administrators of two Brazilian research funding agencies and from the agricultural research agency Embrapa, as well as the Director of International Relations for the Federal Rural University of Pernambuco. They were also representing the president of the Federal University of Pernambuco. The group met with a wide range of administrators, faculty and students during their stay, including with President Loftin, representatives of the Office of the Vice-President for Research and the Office of the Provost and the Colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Architecture and Geosciences, and several new and concrete possibilities for collaboration between Texas A&M and Brazil were explored. In the coming weeks and months these possibilities will be reviewed and discussed with a view to putting some of them into effect. This was a sequel to the visit to Brazil by members of Texas A&M Deans’ offices in April of this year. The Office for Latin American Programs organized and hosted this visit and the April trip.
