O PAULO, Brazil: In late October, INGSA Latin America worked with the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), the Brazilian Ministry of Education, the Academy of Sciences of the State of São Paulo (ACIESP) and the Advanced Studies Institute of the University of São Paulo to deliver Brazil’s first evidence to policy capacity building workshop.

Held in São Paulo, the workshop brought together scientists and policy makers from across the country, and neighbouring Uruguay and Paraguay, to discuss important issues of interest to the Brazilian society, such as violence, environment, climate change and human health.
