FGV professor awarded by Fundação Bunge
Deans from universities and presidents of renowned scientific and cultural institutions have chosen a professor from FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio), Ivar A. Hartmann, for the 2017 Fundação Bunge Award in the Youth category. Hartmann was chosen for excelling in his professional activity as a professor and researcher in fields that include Law and Technology.
The Bunge Foundation Award was created in 1955 to promote scientific and cultural development in Brazil, highlighting the transforming power of individuals in society and encouraging new talents. Approximately 190 people have already been awarded, including Jorge Amado, Oscar Niemeyer, Ruth Rocha, Carlos Chagas Filho, and Adriana Lisboa. FGV’s Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (EAESP) professor, Fernando Abrucio, was also awarded in 2001.
At the age of 32, Hartmann is a PhD candidate in Law at UERJ. He holds a Master’s in Public Law from PUC-RS and an LL.M. from Harvard Law School, coordinates the Supremo em Números [Supreme in Numbers] project by Direito Rio, and is also a researcher at the school’s Center for Justice and Society (CJUS).
The award will be handed down by the Governor of Sao Paulo in a ceremony on September 27, at Palácio dos Bandeirantes.
