An additional focus is to promote international scientific partnerships by attracting a large proportion of students from other countries, as well as by facilitating the interactions of Brazilian students with foreign collaborators.

The program’s scope includes a varied array of studies targeting biodiversity, including cutting edge multidisciplinary, genomic, paleobiological, behavioral and ecological approaches, as well as applied studies of sanitary, economic, social or environmental importance.
