The São Paulo School of Advanced Science, funded by FAPESP, has already brought together hundreds of students and researchers from different countries. Each SPSAS offers short courses in advanced science and technology topics, contributing to the training of participants. The professors at SPSAS are researchers of high visibility worldwide, evidenced by elements such as obtaining high-level scientific awards, publications of recognized impact by the community in the area and leadership in internationally renowned organizations.
The objective of the SPSAS AMAZONIA is to provide young post-doctoral fellows (and final year PhD students) with a multi and interdisciplinary vision, based on science and valuing indigenous and traditional knowledge, which is of the main problems that have historically impeded sustainable development, conservation, and social inclusion in the Amazon Biome.
