Students of the major of Graduation in Administration went on a technical visit to the City Council of Curitiba on the 18th of April. The visit was coordinated by the professor of the discipline of Economics and Public Policies, Prof. Dr. Christian Luiz da Silva, and the UTFPR master’s student, Elis Bianca Azevedo. The purpose of the visit is to approximate theory and practice, as a proposal to align the graduation in administration with the emphasis on public administration, which is one of the strategic focus of the School of Management and Economics of UTFPR.
At the City Council, the group was received by Cristina Fonseca de Jesus (Administrative Technician); Luciane de Fátima Pereira (Legislative Analyst); and Antonio Carlos Torrens (Analyst). The first dealt with the public budget and the commissions that involve the functioning of the council. The second presented the structure of the council and the role of councilmen and the forms of propositions and procedures of the laws. The third portrayed the objectives of the School of the Legislative that seeks to provide political education to the population.
With this initiative, UTFPR approaches the community and increases the dialogue about the possibilities of articulation of the institution as a teaching, research and extension institution, responsible for the training of professionals and citizens, members of a democratic process in consolidation.
The Council, through its representatives, reinforced the interest of this approach and put itself at the disposal of UTFPR to even teach courses and lectures at the university itself.
From April 5 to 12, 2017, the International Seminar on the Prospection of Renewable Energies was held, coordinated by the research group Public Policies and Dynamics of Territorial Development, led by Prof. Dr. Christian Luiz da Silva, that received Prof. Dr. Mayra Casas Vilardell (Universidad de Pinar del Río), or Prof. Dr. Alain Hernández Santoyo, postdoctoral fellow by the Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná, and Prof. Arielys Martínez Hernández, of the Universidad de Pinar del Río, who is doing her sandwich doctorate from March to September this year in the Postgraduate Program in Technology and Society under the supervision of Prof. Christian.
This seminar is part of the international cooperation between the Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná and the Universidad de Pinar del Río (UPR) funded by the MÊS/CUBA call of CAPES. The project is in the third year of completion and ends in 2018. In addition to the work missions, study missions are being carried out as part of this year’s visit by Prof. Arielys. Prof. Decio Estevão do Nascimento will be doing his post-doctorate at UPR by the end of this year.
The project is financed by the funding call (Edital Universal) and this time has new partners, such as Unioeste and UNILA.
This project is part of the internationalization efforts of the Postgraduate Program in Technology and Society (PPGTE) and the Planning and Public Governance Program (PPGPGP). It also has the support of and joint actions with the Department of Management and Economics (DAGEE).
