In partnership with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) this event aims to promote and highlight the expanded cooperation on science and innovation between the United States and Brazil. The event will feature collaborative research projects led by scientists in the state of São Paulo, Brazil and in the United States, targeting the discovery of new science about the Amazon, low carbon economy, and preservation and recovery of biodiversity.
In 2021, Fapesp led the creation of the Amazon +10 Fund, a joint initiative by São Paulo and nine other states – Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and Tocantins – to develop science, technology, and innovation in the Amazon region. State secretaries of science and technology from all ten states, alongside representatives of their research funding agencies (FAPs) created the initiative oriented to biodiversity conservation and climate change, protection of traditional populations and communities, urban challenges, and the bioeconomy as a policy for economic development in the Amazon.

Latin America Program
The Wilson Center’s prestigious Latin America Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America on critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere.

To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.
