For Renato Janine Ribeiro, president of SBPC, the Bicentennial of Independence is a great opportunity to make clear how science, technology, innovation, education, culture, health, the environment and social inclusion, values ​​that SBPC defends and supports since its foundation, they are decisive to guarantee national sovereignty.

“Independence is not something that only refers to the past. Therefore, we want to debate the present and think about the future. Show how this virtuous circle – science, technology, innovation, education, culture, health, environment and social inclusion – can guarantee Brazil’s sovereignty,” she says.

Cláudia Linhares Sales, director of SBPC, says that the themes were chosen with the intention of capturing the current moment, of crises in several aspects. According to her, only with science will the country be able to achieve real independence and that is what the debates want to show. “These are important themes that cannot be ignored in this reflection on Independence. The challenges facing the Brazilian nation today are enormous. We will not emerge from the crisis of education or the environment without science. We will not achieve sustainable development goals without science,” she says.

The event is part of a series of debates that will bring discussions about how science contributes to national sovereignty and independence in various sectors. The first event debated “Science and industrial development”.
