Abstract

Today there is no cohesive strategy to secure a sustainable long-term engagement between WPI and Brazil. In order to develop a strategic plan, over thirty WPI and Brazilian stakeholders were interviewed and ten years of data from IGSD were analyzed. Three areas of impact were identified: Research & Graduate Ed, Industry, and Reputation & Visibility. As result, a multifaceted three-year plan has been designed, a database with strategic contacts in Brazil compiled, and a project management tool developed.
