A joint project between Finland and Brazil to facilitate expertise and exports in the maritime industry

The FinBraTech project promotes trade, training and development operations related to the maritime and technology industries, particularly in the rapidly developing Pernambuco region.

The project launches a development unit that serves the technology industry and particularly the maritime sector in Brazil. The unit is based on cooperation between around ten Finnish educational institutions, the Federal University of Pernambuco and the Federal University of Pará as well as Finnish and Brazilian companies.

The project serves as a channel for Finnish education exports, the export operations of Finnish and Brazilian companies and student, teacher and researcher exchanges between Finland and Brazil. In addition, the project serves to facilitate cooperation between educational institutions providing training and research related to the maritime industry and their cooperation with technology companies.
