Research and Innovation

Research is one of the main pillars sustaining the activities carried out at a University. From it arise new knowledge and ideas, which can be transformed into products, processes and technologies, cultural goods and innovative practices, and those, in their turn, will generate development and well-being for the society.

At the University of Caxias do Sul, research, innovation, and development are intrinsic to academic routine, underlying the structure of the institution's academic and extension programs.

In addition to the stricto sensu graduate programs, which account for the Master's and Doctorate programs, activities related to research are carried out in Nuclei of Research, and in Nuclei of Innovation and Development.
