Institute for Advanced Transdisciplinary Studies (IEAT)

The Institute for Advanced Transdisciplinary Studies officialy started its activities in 2005, after six years on an experimental basis. Its mission is to promote transdisciplinarity by approaching, articulating and overlapping disciplinary fields and traditional areas of knowledge. In order to accomplish this goal, IEAT seeks its own identity by promoting transdisciplinarity, linking the contributions of the existing disciplinary methodologies, allowing strongly contextualized approaches, including the arts, science and technology, and generating new characteristics. Scholars from different parts of the world participate in research projects and a wide range of activities with the local scientific community studying alternatives for the improvement of the scientific, technical and social environments, in close interaction with UFMG. Seminars, workshops, publications, courses and joint events with scholars from IEAT, UFMG and abroad complement our chair and resident programs, where fellows develop their projects in a cooperative framework.
