Brazil-Esisar: a successful partnership !

    • to

Last week we had the honor if receiving two professors from Brazil, Mr Alexandre Jean René Serres, former student from Esisar (graduated 2005) and now professor at Universidade Federal de Campina Grande (UFCG), an historical partner of Esisar, located in the Paraiba state in northeastern Brazil. In addition, he is coordinator of the BRAFITEC project for Brazil.

We also received Mr Guilherme Augusto Barucke Marcondes, professeur and vice-director at Instituto Nacional de Telecomunicações - Inatel, a private university located in the state of Minas Gerais, in the South-East of Brazil. We hope to develop a fruitful partnership with this university, which offers in particular many internship offers in its numerous laboratories and partner companies.

Since 20 years the BRAFITEC (for “BRAzil – France Ingénieurs,TEChnologie”) project is a bilateral partnership between Brazil and France, aiming to promote student mobility for engineering students, via scholarship opportunities. Grenoble INP – Esisar welcomed brazilian students since then.

This year, 5 brazilian students are studying at Grenoble INP – Esisar thanks to this program: 3 are coming from UFCG and 2 from UFRN (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte).
