Infrastructure for research at the Center for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture


CENA/USP mission is to "Generate and disseminate knowledge related to agriculture and the environment, aiming at food security and environmental sustainability." In these activities, especially in research, CENA/USP is recognized nationally and internationally as a center of excellence. Over the past six years, about 80 research projects have been approved by national and international development agencies, such as: FAPESP, CNPq, FINEP, CAPES, Ministry of Agriculture, International Atomic Energy Agency, NASA, National Academy of Science, Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, United States Department of America, European Economic Community, Ohio State University, Cofecub-France, World Bank, International Foundation for Sciences, KFA-Germany, among others, as well as partnerships with numerous private companies. In order to conduct these activities, CENA has a staff of 33 teachers hired in RDIDP, which are divided into three Scientific Divisions, equivalent to Departments in Full Units. The Institution has been giving full support (basic infrastructure and research support programs), teachers and staff to achieve the goals set in the Institutional Academic Project for the next five years. FAPESP's support with RTI's resources will complement the resources made available by the CENA board of directors so that the institution can maintain and even expand its scientific production. (AU)
