The UGA-Minas Gerais partnership was launched in 2015. UGA, with the Minas Gerais State Foundation for Research Support (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de Minas Gerais) supports international teams pursuing new research collaborations. Through the partnership, nearly 20 collaborative research projects have been identified in fields ranging from human health to linguistics to agriculture. The UGA-Minas Gerais partnership builds on UGA’s Portuguese Flagship Program which is funded through the U.S. Department of Defense’s National Security.
