From 23rd to 27th of September, NOVA welcomed a delegation of 8 professors of Universidade Federal do Paraná/UFPR aiming to define a program of cooperation. Working meetings were held at the Rectorate, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia and Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, which resulted in a set of proposals on the exchange of students, teachers and researchers. The organization of scientific-educational structures was also discussed. The Rector of UFPR, Professor Zaki Akel Sobrinho, who visited NOVA last May, was represented by Professor Donizeti Giusti. All members of the delegation are responsible for strategic areas and were accompanied by Professor Graciela Bolzon de Muñiz, Pro-Rector and Coordinator of Research and Graduate Studies. Universidade Federal do Paraná was founded in 1912 and is the oldest University of Brazil.
