This workshop had the goal to promote initiaves for joint research between Brazil and Europe. During two days, different technical discussions were delevoped at the Centre for Computer Electronics (CCE) at USP (University of São Paulo) between Brazilian and European researchers. The discussions allowed the identification of common research topics between the two regions and were fundamental to define details of the First Joint Call for Research Cooperation between the European Union and Brazil in ICT, which was launched in 2010 and had five approved projects. In 2011, a second call was launched and had four approved projects.

In 2014, during de XXXIV CSBC - Congress of the Computer Science Society, which is the major conference in Computer Science in Brazil, we are very proud to held II EU-Brazil Cooperation Workshop in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) - EUBR 2014, that will be between July 28th and July 29th, in Brasilia-DF.

  • Discuss and detail research topics for future cooperation in ICT between Brazil and the European Union;
  • Participate in Information Days for future submissions of joint calls and promote the exchange of researchers between Brazil and Europe;
