  • 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.

    TARGET AUDIENCE

    All Brazilian graduate students are welcome to attend the conference. This will be a unique opportunity to exchange experiences among masters, doctoral and postdoctoral students from various scientific fields.

    GOALS

    Our goal is to connect Brazilian graduate students and professionals in the United States; to enable the dissemination of scientific research; to create a platform for interaction between students and companies; and to recognize talented students through awards.

  • Our dream is to create a network of competitive and innovative professors, researchers, and professional specialists to impact Brazilian science in the coming years!

    Mission

    To enable integration, communication and professional development for Brazilian graduate students in the United States, particularly those whose research field is related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

    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.
