Abstract

FOP currently has seven Graduate Programs. At the last evaluation by CAPES, corresponding to the four-year period of 2014 - 2017, four programs of our School received grades of Excellence for Graduate programs, two were 6 and two 7. This performance leaves FOP in a very comfortable position, considering Graduate Courses. From all Brazilian Graduate Courses with excellence grades (CAPES 6 and 7) in the field of Dentistry four are at FOP and seven in other Schools. Other criteria settle FOP leadership in research, as the number of scholarships for research productivity granted by CNPq to the field of Dentistry. Nearly a quarter of them are granted for our School. The number of students is also significant, more than 500 active students in MSc´s or PhD´s, developing their theses research in about 80 lines of investigation, advised nearly 80 Professor from FOP and a similar number of collaborating researchers. Since the beginning of Postgraduate Courses, 2000 MSc dissertations and 1500 PhD Thesis were presented and approved at FOP. Almost half of FOP´s professor's has served Postdoctoral research abroad. Although the performance of Postgraduate studies and research at FOP is noteworthy, the institutional infrastructure in not comparable. FOP´s main building relatively old, almost 40 years, and has suffered the inevitable aging process, beyond the precarious maintenance caused by budget constraints. Thus there is a pressing need for infrastructure conditions improvement, in order to at least maintain minimally adequate working conditions. This project proposes improvement in the electrical network and acquisition of a new computer service. . The objective of this project is to describe the implementation plan for the Institutional Technical Reserve - RTI/FAPESP, in the amount of R$ 294.817,00. (AU)
