FoRC in the Media: news about the Center


The Food Research Center (FoRC) was founded in 2013 by researchers from the University of São Paulo who have always wanted to create the first Brazilian research center with a multidisciplinary character focused on food and nutrition. This objective became a reality with a funding opportunity by FAPESP. 

This Center takes advantage of the fact that nutrition and health are multidisciplinary issues, and as such can undertake a unique approach with leading professionals from different areas, presenting different knowledge and expertise.

Because of such an enriching nature, the objective of FoRC is to be a network involving academia, private businesses, government, third sector, and society in general, stimulating the dissemination of knowledge and transferring technology in order to perpetuate a virtuous circle of incentives.
