Associate Vice-President for Academic Affairs

Paulo Cesar Duque Estrada

The Graduate and Research Central Coordination Office has the following objectives:

  1. Ensure the conditions for maintaining and developing the hallmark of academic excellence of the graduate programs and research at PUC-RIO.
  2. Ensure that graduate courses and research activities are integrated into the other activities of the University, and respond to the challenges faced by scientists and intellectuals of our time as well as to Brazilian society in particular.
  3. Promote and optimize PUC-RIO's graduate programs and research activities.
  4. Guarantee appropriate conditions for professors, researchers and graduate students to develop their academic work.

Internally, the CCPG is one of the Central Coordinations that constitute the Vice-Presidency for Academic Affairs and works in constant relation with the Graduate Coordination of each Department, offering academic support and guaranteeing quality of academic production in each area of knowledge.

It is through the CCPG that the University as a whole is related to research funding agencies, on a national level — such as CAPES, CNPq and FINEP —, state level — such as FAPERJ — and international level such as the British Council, DAAD or COFECUB.
