Endowed with a vast territory and abundant natural resources, Brazil’s export-oriented economy is grounded in a well-developed agricultural sector, as well as in manufacturing. The country has strong aerospace, pharmaceutical, and information technology industries and an exceptionally balanced energy matrix.
Each year through the MIT-Brazil Program, MIT students intern and conduct research in Brazilian universities, companies and labs. The MIT-Brazil Seed Fund facilitates research collaboration between MIT faculty and their Brazilian counterparts. Our partners are leading Brazilian and multinational companies, universities and research organizations.
