VIRTUS IS AN EMBRAPII COMPETENCE CENTER

EMBRAPII (Brazilian Company for Industrial Research and Innovation) has been accredited by The Brazilian Government to coordinate the Hardware BR Program. In this context, EMBRAPII has created a new operation model called EMBRAPII Competence Centers, which combine actions related to Promoting RDI Competence, Human Resource Training for RDI, Technology Association, and Startup Building and Attraction.

VIRTUS has been accredited in 2023 as “EMBRAPII VIRTUS COMPETENCE CENTER – Intelligent Hardware for Industry“ (VIRTUS-CC). The goal is to promote VIRTUS competences in Intelligent Sensing for industry, as well as develop new competencies to deal with industrial challenges, stimulating cooperation with industrial companies, and acting as public policy initiative to guide and promote solutions within strategic areas. In this area, VIRTUS-CC works on the following technology layers: Physical Components; Connectivity Components; Infrastructure for Application; Information and Communication security.

Promoting scientific and technology competencies for Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) activities involves acquiring knowledge and new findings in the context of VIRTUS-CC area, focusing on increasing the availability of human resources with expertise in Intelligent Sensing for Industry. 

These activities integrate PhD, MSc and undergraduate students and professionals, based on RDI projects within the area of Intelligent Sensing for Industry.
