The PPGCC should produce world-class research, through the work of its professors, students (particularly with their dissertations and theses), alumni, or through the interaction of the groups mentioned with Brazilian or foreign researchers. Like the other Graduate Programs from the FEA-USP, the PPGCC rely on the formal support and infrastructure of the Institutes, Schools, and Units of the USP, including the FEA facilities.
Research laboratories provide structural conditions (physical space, equipment, access to databases, etc.) that make it easier to conduct research, integrating professors, (graduate and undergraduate) students, researchers and technicians. They are the means to execute projects aiming at the university’s threefold vocation: teaching, research, and outreach of services to the community.
The laboratories are tuned with the research lines of the PPGCC of the FEA-USP and they have assisted professors in the preparation of books, journal articles, congress papers, and practical development of their skills and abilities. They are a privileged space so that graduate and undergraduate students can prepare their MA dissertations, Ph.D. theses, and scientific initiation studies.
Aiming at permanently guaranteeing the technological updating of laboratories according to the requirements of each research line, through specific projects, we have sought resources from the Research Deputy Dean’s Office, CNPq, CAPES, FAPESP, among other public agencies supporting research and development, and the FIPECAFI.
The EAC research laboratories are:
