In the frame of the German-Brazilian Year of Science, Technology and Innovation 2010/11, two workshops and one Brazilian delegation visit are organized by Prof. Dr. Ulrich A. Glasmacher (University Heidelberg), Prof. Dr. Peter C. Hackspacher (Universidade Estadual Paulista, Rio Claro), Dr. Bertram Heinze (DWIH, Sao Paulo) and Dr. Ute Münch (GEOTECHNOLOGIEN) focusing on “Opportunities in Geosciences and Geotechnology” between both countries. The two workshops and the delegation visit is partly financed by the International Bureau of the BMBF.

The objective of the two workshops and the delegation visit is the outline of joined research topics for future activities and research cooperation’s between Brazilian and German scientist in different research fields like »Marine Geosciences and Geotechnology«, »Geophysics and Geodesy«, and »Scientific Drilling«.

Renowned scientist and representatives from the industry will join and discuss these topics, the possibilities for cooperation and the need for further joint research.

The proposed two workshops and the visiting tour will provide the platform to gather experts from both countries to discuss joint research projects including joint development of marine technologies. The results will be summarized in a »white paper«. Combining scientific researchers with representatives from the industry supplying marine technologies will have a direct and lasting impact on the near future of joint scientific research.
