IIP invites several long and short-term visitors


IIP invites several long and short-term visitors every year. Visiting Professors are extremely important, so the Institute is able to create an exciting place that fosters collaborative work, discussions, and interactions.

We are very pleased to announce that the number of professors interested in visiting IIP has been increasing over the years and in order for the Institute to properly consider all the applications and to manage its budget, we kindly ask the interested parties to send a research proposal and a CV to visitors@iip.ufrn.br

Please, inform in the research project the tentative initial date along with the expected duration of the stay.

Visiting Professors will receive R$ 10.000, 00 (ten thousand Brazilian reais) per month to cover all local expenses.

Although we also have a budget for travel expenses, we would appreciate if you could cover them from your own research grants. Our budget is limited and we hope to provide financial support for as many visitors as possible. Nevertheless, should you need support for your ticket, please let us know.


In order to receive full consideration, the proposals must be submitted until the March 31st for tentative visits occurring from July to December of the same year and until the September 30th for tentative visits occurring from January to June of the following year.


The applications will be appraised based on:

1) Collaboration (or potential to start a collaboration) with members of the Institute.

2) Relevance of the research project and of past publications.

3) Participation in a workshop (priority will be given to the directors of the event). The budget, in this case, is divided with the event.

4) If you have visited the IIP before, please add to the documents a brief report of the last visit. In the report, please mention the developed activities, publications, comments, and suggestions.


If you require additional information or have questions, please contact us.
