IU signs letter of intent with the State University of Campinas

Dr. Fernando Ferreira Costa, President of the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), welcomed President McRobbie and the members of the IU delegation to their flagship campus in Campinas, a city of more than one million people located two hours outside the city of São Paulo. UNICAMP, the second highest ranked university in Brazil and one of Latin America’s leaders in academic research, has particular strengths in the sciences, technology, and engineering. After Costa’s presentation on the university’s fields of study and research foci, he and McRobbie discussed several areas of potential collaboration. To advance a partnership between IU and UNICAMP, Costa and McRobbie signed a letter of intent, with the next step to sign an agreement of friendship and cooperation in the coming few weeks.
