Improving International Academic Collaboration for our future in a post-pandemic and Post-SDGs world

The year 2022 saw a rapid succession of blows to global cooperation, as noted by Megan Roberts, Director of Policy Planning at the United Nations Foundation. Despite gradual recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine triggered a series of interrelated crises in food, fuel, and energy. Moreover, new data related to Covid-19 revealed the pandemic's devastating impact on health and beyond, while misinformation and disinformation posed serious threats to people, communities, and political systems worldwide.

 

Although the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has been performing remarkable work, collaborative research activities between Brazil and Japan have witnessed a significant decline since 2020, as highlighted by research support foundations such as FAPESP, JSPS, and JST. This underscores the need for stronger academic cooperation as we approach 2030.
 

To this end, we invite researchers, professors, and private- and public-sector workers from both countries to join hands and co-create plans that can yield long-term benefits for our societies at the first Brazil-Japan Academic Collaboration Workshop.

In this workshop, we are going to present some of the main fundings for performing Brazil-Japan Cooperative research and have two panel discussion sessions about issues that could be amended through stronger partnerships.

 

Each panel session will count with four representatives from Japanese institutes and four representatives from Brazilian institutes. Participants will have  chance to interact with panelists and develop proposals upon their presentations. All participants, onsite or online, will also be able to share, develop, and connect their ideas through our main event platform.

BPGI is a four-year degree program which is taught in English.

Degree to be acquired: Bachelor of Arts and Science

Global Issue stands for complex contemporary issues, which are related to the entire globe. These issues are intertwined with various stakeholders and phenomena, and therefore, it is not easy to solve them by using a traditional approach. Global Issues can be seen in our daily lives, and we must try to find a solution from our daily lives. For example, even a piece of bread that you have had for breakfast could highlight issues like the significant cost of energy used to import wheat, the wage and human rights issues of people engaged in production and transportation, mass disposal, and biased food distribution in the world.

Bruna Navarone Santos holds a bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from the State University of Rio de Janeiro, and a master's degree in Science. Currently, she is pursuing a doctorate degree in Education in Biosciences and Health at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation/Oswaldo Cruz Institute. Bruna’s research focuses on comparative studies of emotion and scientific formation in the Scientific Initiation Laboratory in Basic Education of the Joaquim Venâncio Polytechnic School of Health, under the guidance of researcher Isabela Cabral Félix de Sousa. Her current research interest is to compare the perspectives of Brazil and Japan on science education, with a particular focus on analyzing programs like the Scientific Vocation Program of the Joaquim Venâncio Polytechnic School of Health/ Oswaldo Cruz Foundation in Brazil and the Japanese program Sakura Science, organized by Japan Science and Technology Agency. This research aims to investigate how conceptions of science in Western and Eastern cultures influence the selection of objectives, planning of activities, and participation of professionals and students in scientific education programs for high school students.

About Institution / Department

The Scientific Initiation Laboratory in Basic Education (Lic-Provoc) of the Joaquim Venâncio Polytechnic School of Health (EPSJV), which is a Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization for Health Technician Education, is responsible for coordinating the Scientific Vocation Program at Oswaldo Cruz Foundation. Since its establishment in Rio de Janeiro in 1986, this program has been providing high school students with the opportunity to engage in scientific initiation activities in the areas of Biological, Health, Human, or Social Sciences.

The professionals from Lic-Provoc have conducted qualitative research on the formative process of Provoc-EPSJV/Fiocruz students. Their studies have explored gender issues related to academic and professional choices, considering the historical predominance of female students in the program. They have also investigated the mentoring relationships that develop during the formative process of these young people, with an emphasis on the relationship between students, advisors, and co-advisors. In addition, some studies have analyzed the relationships between students and economically disadvantaged areas located in the urban region of Rio de Janeiro. Recently, the Laboratory has also conducted research on the role of emotions in scientific initiation activities, giving voice to students, alumni, advisors, and co-advisors.

In terms of internationalization activities, meetings were held in 2021 and 2022 with Rodrigo Fernandes, the regional vice-coordinator of the Study in Japan Global Network Project South America office located in São Paulo. These meetings provided an opportunity to exchange knowledge and interact with academic institutes in Japan. Initially, Bruna Navarone Santos, Dr. Isabela Cabral Félix de Sousa, and Dr. Anme Tokie attended the meetings. On November 9, 2022, Rodrigo Fernandes visited Joaquim Venâncio Polytechnic School of Health and was welcomed by the director, Dr. Anamaria D' Andrea Corbo, the coordinator of International Cooperation, Dr. Carlos Eduardo Colpo Batistella, the coordinator of the Scientific Vocation Program, MSc. Cristiane Nogueira Braga, Dr. Isabela Cabral Félix de Sousa, and Bruna Navarone Santos.

About Representative

Enrick Magalhães is a Master's candidate in the graduate program in Design at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Visual Communication Design from the same university. Enrick's research interests focus on the intersection of design and music, specifically exploring how gamification can be applied to the process of musical composition to make it more accessible to an audience without formal music theory training.

His current academic dissertation adopts the Design Science Research (DSR) methodology to investigate how the software design of musical composition tools can assist novice musicians in composing music based on the principles of music theory. Through an exploratory study, Enrick plans to analyze the available playful forms of assistance for musical softwares through iterative design and user evaluation. He aims to develop an intuitive and accessible tool that has the potential to significantly contribute to the fields of design and music, as well as educational and creative activities more broadly.

About Institution / Department

The Graduate Program in Design at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (PPGD-UFRJ) has its main focus on the cultural and technological relationships established between the field of imagery and design. It is dedicated to academic research and the improvement of teachers and professionals working in the regional and national markets. It is a young program that came to fill a gap in the field of design in a school (Fine Arts) and university (UFRJ) with 200 years of history.

The PPGD-UFRJ was recommended by CAPES at the 164th Meeting of CTC-ES on June 3, 2016, and became part of the National Postgraduate System. Research in the program is organized around two lines of research, in a single area of concentration, Visual Design. This concentration area applies to the study of the processes of transformation of apparatus, mechanisms, and services identified in the production, experimentation, and interaction with visual artifacts. To do so, it considers theoretical-practical aspects in projects developed in the field of the changing nature of design in the context of the post-industrial era.

About Representative

My interest in the event is the network to be generated and also to have new knowledge about studying in Japan. I am currently doing a master's degree in pharmacology at the federal university of são paulo (UNIFESP), where I carry out research with analysis of oligopeptidases, specifically NDEL1, which is involved in several processes in neurodevelopment and is a potential candidate for biomarker in mental disorders. I investigate activity levels of this oligopeptidase in two animal models (Microcephaly induced by zika virus and status epilepticus by pilocarpine) in order to better understand Ndel1 in different contexts of neurodevelopment and epilepsy insults.

About Institution / Department

The department to which I belong (Pharmacology) has several researches in the scope of studies in physiology and pharmacology. The contribution of this institution is to be able to contribute to training and to add to collaborative research, allowing other points of view and innovative ideas.

About Institution / Department

My study group, Animê, Manga, SciFi (Science Fiction) and Pop Culture in Science Teaching (AMSEC-Pop), from the Laboratory of Innovations in Therapies, Teaching and Bioproducts (LITEB) of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute (IOC/ Fiocruz) was created in 2019 from the submission of a research project to Provoc-Fiocruz, proposing to investigate anime, manga and science fiction in their potential for science teaching. This conception of science contemplates the convergence of the areas of Biological and Health Sciences as well as the Humanities and Social areas around cultural objects of interest to the group. The Scientific Vocation Program of the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Provoc-Fiocruz) is the proposal for scientific initiation in high school in Brazil, under the supervision of research advisors from this institution. We intend to expand research and encourage the exchange of experiences between researchers in Brazil and Japan.
