    Vision

    To become the largest platform for networking among Brazilian graduate students and professionals in the United States, companies, universities, government agencies, and research institutes from Brazil.
    To become an international reference for dissemination and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge in order to consolidate and expand science, technology and innovation in Brazil.

  • THE CONFERENCE

    The Brazilian Graduate Student Conference promotes activities to enable integration, communication, and professional development for Brazilian graduate students (professional or academic masters, sandwich or full doctoral, and postdoctoral) in the United States within the research fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

    MOTIVATION

    The need for networking among Brazilian students and professionals working in the United States inspired three Brazilian graduate students to create BRASCON.

  • BRASCON Spotlight

    Emellin de Oliveira

    Meet Emellin de Oliveira Ph.D. in Law Candidate at NOVA University of Lisbon. Dr. Emellin is an Immigration Lawyer from Macapá, Brazil. She first moved to Portugal over 5 years ago to pursue a Master in International Migration. She also holds a specialization degree in Peace and Security Studies at the University of Coimbra.

    Her tips for success are to " start by collecting as much information as possible about the new country's educational system, required documents, and coursework, and your legal obligations as a foreigner. This will help your adaptation process. Persistence, self-confidence and humility are the keys for doing research whatever your country of origin is".

    Thais Barbosa

    Dr. Thais Barbosa, from São Paulo, Brazil, is an Assistant Professor of Integrative Physiology at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

    Dr. Thais Barbosa, a USP alumni, left almost 10 years ago to earn a Ph.D. undertake her post-doctoral training in Sweden.

     

    Her tips for success are: "Do not be afraid of the challenge. Never forget your roots, but respect your new work and country, and the colleagues of different nationalities you may work with. Work hard, never give up, and face new challenges with strong motivation and enthusiasm. It is not easy to establish a career abroad and anywhere in the world there will be positive and negative sides. Choose a place that you like and a scientific field that brings you joy and excitement. Last but not least; try to balance your career ambitions and your personal life. If you are really passionate and dedicated to what you do, you will certainly succeed! "
