Annual Application Plan for Technical Reserve of Institutional Research Framework of the CCTS.


The Center of Sciences and Technologies for Sustainability - CSTS, from São Carlos Federal University, campus of Sorocaba, was created in its current configuration in 2014. The Center presents 58 professors and 21 staff members, distributed in two departments, four grad courses, three academic post-graduation courses, and two professional post-graduation courses. From 2014 until the present month, 446 scientific articles were published. Considering only the period from 2104-2016, in which years were complete, the members of the Center produced 384 papers, with an average of 2.2 articles per professor, per year. Although a slight increase in productivity could be noted for this period, these data indicate that research activities in the Center are still in its implementation stage, which is reinforced by the fact that most of this productivity was based on undergraduate and masters of science works. Although two of the academic post-graduation courses have PhD programs (the Programa de Pós-Graduação em Planejamento e Uso de Recursos Renováveis - PPG-PUR, and the Programa de Pós-Graduação em Biotecnologia e Monitoramento Ambiental - PPG-BMA), they were opened in 2016, in such a way that the first theses are expected only for 2018, when a significant increase in the productivity is expected to occur. The present Application Plan was evaluated and approved in the departments and it was considered and approved by the council of the Center. In total, four regular projects have generated R$28.806,58. The Project's IDs are FAPESP 2015/16106-8, 2015/21229-1, 2016/10796-5, and 2016/19896-2. Priority was given to the acquisition of equipments and services that could give support to research activities that involved ongoing projects financed by FAPESP. In addition, all of the items are going to benefit groups that share the same equipments or spaces, rather than benefit individual researchers. These investments will certainly result in gains in productivity and will contribute with student's qualification. (AU)
