The Netherlands and Brazil: 10 showcases of collaboration in science, technology and innovation

Despite being literally an ocean apart, when it comes to science, technology and innovation, Brazil and the Netherlands cherish a special and tight relationship. In this booklet, our second volume of showcases, you can read about the benefits of reaching out to colleagues from other backgrounds and cultures to jointly study topics like aviation, biomass, droughts, radio telescopes and bioplastics-producing bacteria.

It showcases the diversity of ways in which people collaborate. This ranges from single-project-based to decade-long partnerships, from exchanging materials and people between labs in both countries to jointly supervising PhD students to obtain dual degrees, and from discussing from a distance to a Brazilian company deciding to open a new physical office in the Netherlands.
