For more than 50 years, the University of Münster (UM) has maintained intensive contacts with scientists and universities in Brazil. Since 2010, these collaborations have been bundled by the Brazil Centre as an interdisciplinary association of researchers at the UM with activities in Brazil. Whether research, research transfer, teaching or studying, the Brazil Centre offers comprehensive support and advice to members of the University of Münster. Moreover, a contact point is offered to students and researchers in Brazil with the Brazil Centre's liaison office in São Paulo. The main goal of the Brazil Centre is to strengthen and further develop the cooperation between the UM and Brazil as well as to initiate new collaborations. More recently, the Brazil Centre has initiated collaborations in other Latin American countries.
