The power of modern societies is highly dependent on the ability of defusing the technological and scientific knowledge created at universities and research centers to the companies. The technological innovation, supported by this knowledge, is the base of the competitiveness and the main support for the development of companies. In this scenario, universities have played an important role for, together with companies, helping the technological development. FEI University has a long tradition in the quest for the technological innovation and for the interaction with the productive sector. This interaction happens in two main ways: making available the knowledge created by FEI researchers for the solution of already existing problems, and searching for answers to specific problems not yet solved, originating new researches.
Center for Innovation Projects (CEPIN)
CEPIN is a IPEI´s division devoted to the prospection of opportunities for development of research projects, through funding coming from public agencies and also from partnerships with companies. This division identifies and publicizes opportunities to the FEI University´s community as well as help the researchers with the preparation of the proposal. Another important role played by CEPIN is the support and management of the funding resources obtained throughout the development of institutional and individual projects with public agencies, like FINEP, CNPq and FAPESP.
