“Rio de Janeiro is a state characterized by the presence of a vast and diverse science park, with federal and state universities and research institutes in many areas of knowledge. This should be used as an asset in our process of economic, scientific, technological and social development. The project aims to systematically organize these institutions, make them communicate, and strengthen them In the dispute over public resources in this area and making sure that all this is a vector of development, ”said the Chairman of the Raj Committee for Science and Technology., State Deputy Waldik Carneiro (Socialist Party), author of the proposal with MP Gustavo Tutuka (PP).

The initiative establishes better conditions for integration between different educational and research institutions, encourages cooperation between these centers and academic companies and establishes greater financial independence for the sector. Among the highlights about the project, former Minister and current President of the Institute of Science, Technology and Innovation of Marica (ICTIM), Celso Bancera, is the proposal to convert the Sectoral Fund (FATEC) from accounting to finance. With this, it will be possible for the directors to have greater autonomy in the use of the resources, and even the balance which is not carried out in a particular year can be applied in the following year, without returning to the sole bank of the government. According to Bansera, this sectoral fund financial characterization has been implemented in a similar manner at the federal level. This measure improved the management of the National Fund for Scientific and Technological Development (FNDCT) by FINEP.
