The event aims to Create a Brazilian strategy for the region.

The conference was a stage of the national conference that will be held in June. “There have been efforts in Brazil to reduce regional disparities, but they are just beginning. So, it is up to us to come together to put our points into the national strategy. Goiás has been leading these efforts, so much so that it will host the regional conference in April.” Goiás has something to say to Brazil,” says the head of the Goiás community, José Frederico Lira Neto.

The event will also bring together representatives from the states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. In partnership with the universities and the Goiás State Research Support Foundation (Fapeg), Secti will produce a report on the ST&I requirements discussed at the state level, which will serve as the basis for the national strategy that will be discussed later.
