The present project aims to define the application of the resources made available by FAPESP, in the form of the Technical Reserve associated with the research projects submitted by members of the Faculty of Food Engineering / UNICAMP (FEA/UNICAMP) and approved in 2016. The present application proposes to use the resources in the expansion and improvement of FEA´s research infrastructure, an infrastructure distributed among the laboratories of the different research groups and the Laboratory of Central Support (LAC), as well as the information technology infrastructure and the infrastructure associated with conducting research groups meetings, seminars, workshops, thesis defenses and dissertation. It also involves civil maintenance expenses and the infrastructure associated with laboratory and equipment security, improvements necessary for the preservation of research equipment and researchers´ safety in the laboratories of the School o Food Engineering (FEA). The project was prepared by the Unit's Board, in agreement with the Interdepartmental Council of FEA, which includes the Heads of the four Departments, the Coordinators of the Committees of Graduate Studies, of Extension and Research, and of Undergraduate Studies, the Directors (Director and Associate Director) and student and employees representatives. FEA has four Graduate Programs associated with the Food Science Area and one Graduate Program associated with the Multidisciplinary Area of CAPES. The four Programs of the Food Science Area obtained two grades 7 (Master's and Doctorate in Science and Food Engineering) and two grades 5 (Master's and Doctoral Degree in Food Technology and Food and Nutrition) in the recent CAPES evaluation. It is important to emphasize that the Food Science Area involves 58 Graduate Programs in the whole country and there are only two with evaluation 7 and 3 with evaluation 6. Therefore, currently all the programs with grade 7 are located in FEA and two programs grade 5, in ten programs with this performance, are also housed in our unit. The PhD Program in Bioenergy/UNICAMP is located in our unit, but it is a very recent program that it involves professors from FEA and several other units of UNICAMP (FEM, FEQ, FEAGRI, IB, IQ, IG, IFGW, and IE) and also professors of several areas of USP and UNESP. Its evaluation is grade 4. Therefore, this project will benefit five Graduate Programs, among which are the two best Programs nowadays in the area of Food Science in Brazil. (AU)
