The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Marcelo Carneiro Leão, and the pro-rector of Research and Post-Graduation at UFRPE, Professor Madalena Guerra, signed the Manifesto for Brazilian Science last Wednesday (25/10). The document is the initiative of the Pernambuco Research and Graduate Pro-Rectors, with the support of the rectors of the public universities of Pernambuco, the Foundation for Science and Technology Support of Pernambuco (Facepe) and the Secretariat of Science, Technology and Innovation ( Secti).
The signing marked the programming of Science Day C, in which universities and research centers across the country mobilized to solicit government and society support for scientific production. "It's a day of struggle for our research and scientific production, which is about 90% made in Brazilian universities," said UFRPE deputy dean.
In addition to the signing of the Manifesto, Prof. Isac Almeida de Medeiros, Pro-Rector of Research at the Federal University of Paraíba (UFPB), gave a lecture on Science and National Sovereignty. Still at Secti, the Trio Freveribe, from the Music Department of UFPE, finalized the set of actions with Concerto for Science.
