International Affairs Office of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - SCRI/UFRJ

    The UFRJ International Affairs Office (SCRI) develops the international policy of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The SCRI/UFRJ manages more than 170 international agreements on technical, scientific, and cultural cooperation whose aims are the exchange of knowledge, the stimulation of research, and a finer perception of otherness. The intercultural dialogue arisen from such partnerships broadens the professional and human horizons of the students, teachers and technical-administrative staff.

Briefly, the section of International Affairs is in charge of the establishment of foreign cooperation, search and dissemination of opportunities for the internal public, the reception of foreign delegations and representation of UFRJ in Brazil and abroad.
