About Us

The German House for Research and Innovation - São Paulo (DWIH-SP) was created in 2009 by the German Federal Foreign Office (AA), in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the internationalization policy of the two ministries. The goal is to increase the visibility in Brazil of Germany as a scientific and technological center and foster synergy and exchange between German and Brazilian scientific institutions - particularly in São Paulo, the largest center of  German industry outside Germany.

Both Germany and Brazil consider science and innovation to be key areas  for ensuring  economic, social and sustainable environmental development. For over 40 years, the two countries have promoted  comprehensive and fruitful scientific cooperation. With the opening of DWIH-SP, Germany took an important step towards strengthening ties with its Brazilian partners.
