2016 UNL/Brazil Partners Working MeetingImproving the Lives of Children: A UNL-Brazil Collaborative on Early Childhood Research and Practice

Launching a global partnership for change

The mission of this two-day working meeting is to bring together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Brazil to improve young children’s lives through global interdisciplinary research collaboration, and to share evidence-based practices that promote the intellectual, behavioral, and social-emotional development and functioning of young children. We envision this initial meeting as a starting point for long-lasting and engaged research partnerships between Brazil and Nebraska.
