The knowledge generation seeking its main goal the excellence in quality. In this regard, the program aims to:

– To stimulate the training of researchers with solid and integrative training based on the core and research groups in action, enabling them to carry out research of a high scientific and technological level, to autonomously produce knowledge of quality and to enable them to form human resources in researchings and teaching.

– Training of teaching staff for higher education institutions and school hospitals, with critical capacity for reading of literature, data acquisition and interpretation.

– Systematic production of high quality, with institutional link, in periodicals of international circulation.

– Construction of integrative research projects in the different areas of knowledge.
