Scientific Initiation

Last Update: Feb. 6, 2017

The Scientific Initiation is a program aimed to undergraduate students, connecting them to study groups and lines of research. It also intends to encourage the student, coached by an experienced professor, to learn techniques and scientific methods, as well as to stimulate the development of scientific thinking and creativity, which are results of conditions created by direct confront with research issues.

Undergraduates may develop research through Scientific Initiation with support of scholarship offered traditional agencies for research funding. However, they may also work without being connected to any scholarship and/or assistance.
