Founded in 1920, the Federal University at Rio de Janeiro celebrated its centenary last September. The timing was unfortunate. The COVID-19 pandemic completely derailed the original plan for a major ‘conventional’ international conference, which had to be postponed. However, there turned out to be a silver lining.
Fundada em 1920, a Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro celebrou seu centenário em setembro do ano passado (2020). O momento foi conturbado. A pandemia COVID-19 desviou o plano original de realizar uma grande conferência internacional no velho estilo presencial, que teve de ser adiada. No entanto, acabou por trazer algo de bom.
UFRJ’s Pro-internationalisation (PRINT) program serves to extend the university’s reach and impact locally and globally. We research in order to learn and teach; we generate and share knowledge locally and internationally to serve society, locally and globally.
