Inria International Partners

MOAIS has a long term collaboration with several universities in Brazil, and in particular with UFRGS, Porto Alegre and USP, Sao Paulo. Several mobility grants support these collaborations:

  • Inria Diode-A associated team (2006-2011),

  • CNRS/Cnpq (2011-2013).

  • Inria/Cnpq (2008-2010),

  • Capes/Cofecub (2006-2007, 2008-2009, 2010-2012),

  • Associated International Laboratory LICIA (http://www.inf.ufrgs.br/licia ) funded by CNRS (since 2011).

This collaboration is important to get access to high quality students. Classically students pursue their PhD in our team full or half time in "co-tutelle” (double graduation). These PhDs are almost all funded by Brazil. Over the 2008-2012 period, 5 PhD students (3 from UFRGS, 2 from USP) were advised at Moais. Initially based on experimented researcher exchanges, the increase of fundings enabled to involve Master students that usually stay 2-4 months in our team and often come back later for a PhD.
