“Research is not done by individuals, but by networks.” Monica Oliveira, Dean of Postgraduate Studies and Research (Propp) at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora (UFJF), opens a new research phase of the institution. At an event last Tuesday, the 10th, scientists from different regions gathered in the auditorium of the Institute for Exact Sciences (ICE) to collaborate on multiple research fronts.

The formation of collaborative scholarly networks within the university marks a new phase for graduate programs, Oliveira learns. The Rector assessed the event with a very positive balance and is confident in the next steps to enhance the interaction between the different fields of knowledge and to enhance the impact of the research developed at the UFJF.

Through this strategy, the university intends not only to increase the effectiveness of its research projects, but also to become more competitive in future funding calls and public notices. To achieve this, Propp invited the Foundation’s professors to participate in a survey of the science projects underway at the UFJF. This designation identified a total of 274 research projects spread across a variety of fields, with the most representative segment being interdisciplinary, which comprises 16.8% of the total. Next, we have the humanities, which account for 15.3% of searches, and the health sciences, which account for 12%.

Projects not linked to any particular graduate program make up 11.3% of the total, followed by the fields of exact sciences and earth sciences (10.9%) and engineering and biological sciences (each corresponding to 9, 1%, respectively). Applied social sciences account for 8.4% of the total. And the field of linguistics, literature and the arts, in turn, accounted for 6.6% of the surveys. data Publicly available.

According to the Propp team, it was clear that the upcoming UFJF strategies represented a significant milestone in the ongoing pursuit of excellence in research. In the university’s view, by adopting a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach, the institution not only enhances its research capabilities, but also contributes to a more integrated and innovative future for science in general.
