Research and innovate


SENAI CIMATEC focuses on Research and Innovation for the development of industry. We are unique in that we integrate the innovation and research processes of a Technology Center to the academic and scientific researches of a Technology School. Besides presenting a large experience in the execution of projects of varied magnitude and complexity, SENAI CIMATEC stands out for its accomplishments in Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I), partnering with national and foreign organizations, having a total figure of over $55 million in project resources and high intellectual property indicators, owning the rights to over 60 registered patents. The R&D&I projects executed on Campus are managed by SENAI’s PMO – Project Management Office, and rely on an advanced financial engineering with facilitated access to a number of funding programs and economic support for R&D&I projects. SENAI CIMATEC is one of the leading project developers in cooperation with EMBRAPII (Brazilian Agency for Industrial Research and Innovation), from the 2011 pilot operation on, and it has been recognized by FINEP (Brazilian Innovation Agency) as an Institution for Research, Innovation and Technology in the Northeast Region of Brazil. All available funding sources for R&D&I projects are carefully prospected and identified under advisory and intermediation from the institution.
