The Aus­tralian and Brazil­ian gov­ern­ments have signed an agree­ment that will en­able re­searchers from both coun­tries to col­lab­o­rate more closely on tech­nol­ogy, in­no­va­tion, and science projects.

The agree­ment signed by Aus­tralian Min­is­ter for In­dus­try, In­no­va­tion and Science Arthur Sin­odi­nos and Brazil’s Am­bas­sador to Aus­tralia Manuel In­no­cen­cio de Lac­erda San­tos Jr, builds on Aus­tralia’s long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with Brazil, and will sup­port in­sti­tu­tion-to-in­sti­tu­tion and re­searcher-to-re­searcher links. The coun­tries have pre­vi­ously worked on sci­en­tific projects in ar­eas such as phys­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal sci­ences, clin­i­cal medicine, and astron­omy. Last year, the Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment pro­vided more than AU$17 mil­lion for joint projects with Brazil­ian re­search part­ners through the Aus­tralian Re­search Coun­cil and the Na­tional Health and Med­i­cal Re­search Coun­cil.

Col­lab­o­ra­tion with Brazil is also sup­ported un­der the Na­tional In­no­va­tion and Science Agenda’s Global In­no­va­tion Strat­egy. The Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment had pledged a to­tal of AU$36 mil­lion over five years to im­prove in­ter­na­tional in­no­va­tion and science col­lab­o­ra­tion.
