End-of-year message

In 2022, we returned to the ‘new normal’ with in-person activities interspersed with virtual ones and masks disappearing from our daily lives thanks to the vaccination of most of the population against Covid-19.

That is why we were able to meet again at our annual event in Foz do Iguaçu last September. The strength and resilience of our community were present at all times. Despite the lack of funding and difficult working conditions we had almost 1,200 participants and 22 partner companies present in Foz do Iguaçu! We hope that the celebratory cry of students at our traditional conference party can always be fulfilled: “Online event never again!”.

In 2023, we want science to be heard and respected with the changes to come in Brazil. However, as a scientific society, we will continue to fight and act together with our peers and the community in defense of education as a pillar for a fairer society, and of science and technological development as tools to achieve decent living conditions for the entire population.

An excellent end of the year to all! May we recharge our energies to overcome the many challenges ahead, hoping for a better country and a better world.
