The Scientific Mobility Program (SMP) is an effort of the Government of Brazil aimed at promoting, consolidating, and internationalizing science and technology, innovation, and Brazilian competitiveness through international exchanges. BUSBC, recognizing the significance of the Scientific Mobility program, works with our members and partners to facilitate the implementation of the SMP and disseminate information on the program to the U.S. private sector. During the Partnership21 conference featuring President Rousseff, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce signed a protocol of intentions with the Brazilian National Confederation of Industry (CNI) to join efforts in this endeavor. The Chamber and CNI reaffirm their longstanding partnership to foster business growth and to better the business environment in and between Brazil and the United States.
