FGV's Administration School in Rio creates center for research on behavior

14 November 2013

The Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration of Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV/EBAPE) has just launched the Center for Behavioral Research (CBR) - a research center that has the objective of investigating the behavior and decision-making of individuals within their social environment.

CBR's research has an interdisciplinary nature and it seeks to build a bridge between the academic world, companies, the government and society.  The center is attended by students from the master's and doctoral degrees programs of EBAPE and by with FGV professors of areas such as Consumer Behavior, Organizational Behavior, Cognitive Sciences, Behavioral Finance, Statistics, Applied Mathematics and Political Sciences. In addition to the students, the launch was attended by professors Alvaro Cyrino, Alketa Peci, Cesar Zucco, Daniela Campello, Eduardo Andrade, Filipe Sobral, Henry Heidtmann Neto and Rafael Goldszmidt. 

The CBR will hold fortnightly events, in which community members and researchers will discuss opportunities and research ideas in their initial phases.

The center is a mechanism that, on the one hand, will take into FGV contexts and research problems of high relevance to society, and on the other, will take to society the conceptual and methodological force needed to carry out high quality academic research. We all benefit from it, explains CBR's coordinator, Professor Eduardo Andrade.

The first CBR meeting also served to consolidate the partnership between FGV, represented by the center, and the Secretary of the State Government of Rio de Janeiro, represented by the general coordinator of the Lei-Seca Operation (OLS - Dry Law Operation), Major Marco Antonio Andrade.
