Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) is the leading think tank in Latin America and one of the top worldwide. For more than 70 years, FGV has been building bridges between theory and practice by combining academic research and education with high level policy advice and training for the next generation of political, economic, and social leaders. Today, FGV is home to some of Brazil’s most respected experts in the fields of economics, finance, management, and law, and has built strong partnerships with like-minded institutions in over 45 countries all around the world.
In order to fulfill its mission to promote the socioeconomic development of Brazil, FGV builds on academic excellence and tradition. All of its eight schools occupy a prominent place in the higher education ranking of the Brazilian Ministry of Education. FGV’s research centers are responsible for the production of important public goods, such as inflation indexes, economic and social indicators for the Brazilian Government.
FGV Projetos is FGV’s technical advisory unit. For more than 30 years, the unit has been supporting public, private and third-sector institutions in Brazil and abroad to achieve excellence in their administrative and financial management processes, or develop innovative public policies. The generated resources are reinvested in FGV’s teaching and research activities, as well as in knowledge sharing activities such as events and publications on strategic issues related to national and global development.
FGV Europe is the first overseas representation office of Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) based in the German city of Cologne, in the heart of Europe. FGV Europe functions as a bridge builder between Brazilian and European institutions from the public and private sectors, guiding them in foreign investment endeavors, technology transfer projects and project finance operations. In cooperation with its partner organizations from Europe and Brazil, FGV Europe develops events and publications that can stimulate and improve bi- and multilateral exchange and cooperation on topics of mutual interest.
