The IFSP was honored with the first place among the institutes participating in the training in Innovation Management promoted by Setec / MEC in partnership with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), an Australian applied research agency.
The tribute took place last Friday (6), at the end of the training that took place throughout 2019, with three in-person stages: in March, August and now in December. As part of the activities, the participating teams should develop a strategic innovation plan for their institution. The IFSP project was voted the best, and for that reason it was decorated.
For the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, Eder Sacconi, the tribute reflects the seriousness of the work developed by the IFSP, which has the main pillar in the greater interaction between researchers, management and the productive sector.
In 2018, Setec selected, through a public notice, 15 institutions of the Federal Network to participate in the training. The IFSP team was comprised of servers Alexandre Chahad, director of Inova IFSP, Adalton Ozaki and Ana Paula Brito, from the Technological Innovation Center (NIT), Eder Sacconi, acting dean of Research and Graduate Studies, and Andréia de Alcântara Cerizza, Research and Innovation coordinator at Campus Birigui.
In Andréia's view, the training came to consolidate Inova's work. According to her, participating in a project like this, with potential for local development, motivates and establishes a new work criterion, articulated with the global needs for technological responses and innovation.
The IFSP associated training with actions already underway at the Institution, such as call 668, which selected four campuses to accelerate the Innovation Pole. According to the director of the NIT, Adalton Ozaki, this announcement was very important, mainly due to the process of construction of the proposal, which provided a reflection on how each campus wishes to be recognized by society, in terms of innovation and applied research.
