Physics and Chemistry of Climate Change and Entrepreneurship Workshop
February 2009, Brazil

The IOP sponsored a workshop for scientist in Brazil on the commercialization of research in climate change issues. We worked with the RSC and FAPESP. FAPESP is one of Brazil’s leading funding agencies for scientific and technological research. It is active in every area of knowledge, awarding grants and financial assistance for research projects developed by researchers in the State of São Paulo, in addition to other activities in the promotion of research and scientific exchange. The Royal Society and the British Consulate also supported the event. The workshop took place in Sao Paulo from 26 to 27 February and speakers from the UK and Brazil spoke on energy issues and technology transfer.
