He saw the Center’s projects, as well as visited the Numerical Test Tank of USP’s Polytechnic School
Last Wednesday, December 6, the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) was visited by the Dutch Ambassador to Brazil, Han Peters. He was received by Professor Julio Meneghini, Scientific Director of RCGI, who presented the programs and projects maintained by the Centre. The Ambassador explained that the objective of his visit was to strengthen relations with Dutch universities, in terms of both existing and new partnerships focusing on areas that have synergy for exchanging researchers.
“The visit was scheduled, after we met the Ambassador at an event organized by the Delft Technical University at the Dutch Consulate in São Paulo, Brazil. He was interested in seeing RCGI, especially because of our partnership with Shell, which is an Anglo-Dutch company. We are now planning a trip to the Netherlands, for the beginning of next year, for the purpose of holding a possible road show about RCGI in Dutch universities, in order to attract researches and partners,” Meneghini revealed.
Also accompanying the visit to RCGI was the Adjunct Coordinator of Special Programs and Research Collaboration of FAPESP, Luiz Nunes de Oliveira, who represented the institution’s Scientific Director, Carlos Henrique de Brito Cruz, as well as RCGI officials: Emílio Silva, Director of the Engineering Programme; Rita de Brito Alves, Deputy Director of the Physical-Chemistry Programme; Karen Mascarenhas, Director pf HR and Leadership; and Suani Teixeira Coelho, Deputy Director of the Energy and Economic Policies Programme.
The Ambassador also visited the Numerical Test Tank of USP’s Polytechnic School, accompanied by Professor Kazuo Nishimoto.
