ONR lecture focuses on Brazil's growth in global science and technology
Date:10/22/2010

ARLINGTON, Va.--Brazil's efforts to increase government investment in science and technology, as well expand its global presence, were the focus of the third Office of Naval Research (ONR)-sponsored International Lecture Series held Oct. 18 at the organizations corporate headquarters.

"The Arrival of Brazil" lecture featured Dr. William Melton, surface ship coordinator, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock; Dr. Eugenius Kaszkurewicz, director of scientific development and technological financier of studies and projects (FINEP), ministry of science and technology; Dr. Fernando Rizzo, director, Center for Strategic Studies and Management: science, technology & innovation; and Dr. Jaime Fretias, electronic science and technology research, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.

Brazil has steadily risen over the years to become an innovative force in the international community, said Dr. Larry Schuette, ONR's director of innovation, and sponsor of the lecture.

"With favorable macroeconomic conditions and the introduction of national science, technology and innovation policy as a government priority, Brazil is a country that we should continue to watch, learn from and identify shared interests to partner in," Schuette said.

These lectures help ONR understand and identify emerging science and technology (S&T), and build relationships with the external research community, Schuette said. They also inspire and challenge ONR's program officers to pursue world-class research.

The Office of Innovation promotes, fosters and develops innovative science, technology, processes and policies that support the Department of the Navy. ONR's lecture series features leaders in innovation, from a global, academia and military perspective. They are intended to open the aperture to the innovative research being conducted across the globe, Schuette said.

Lecture speaker Kaszkurewicz told attendees there are opportune areas for Br
