The Strategic Unit of Virtual Universities, Entertainment and Mobility (NUVEM), created on November 6, 2013 by RESOLUTION ConsUni Nº 126, include research groups in the areas of Intelligent Societies, Mobility, Extreme Computing, Integrated Universes and Virtual Sensations.
The motivation for the creation of the NUVEM Strategic Unit is aligned with the UFABC Innovation Campus (according to the UFABC PDI), a "scientific and technological infrastructure initiative that aims to transcend the barriers between academic research and technological innovation, through the creation of a park of advanced laboratories dedicated to areas identified as priorities in the National Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (ENCTI) of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) of the Federal Government. " To reach this goal the Unit should have strong interaction with the productive sector for the generation of technological innovation.
With almost five years of existence, NUVEM actively participates in teaching, research and extension activities, such as the realization of projects, articles, partnerships with municipalities and development of courses. Aligned with the principles of UFABC, NUVEM promotes the joint work among its means, which resulted in the increase of more than 300% in multidisciplinary works developed by the 17 members that currently make up the NUVEM.
In addition to activities with internal members, NUVEM is constantly providing services to the academic community of UFABC, through support for events, research activities, infrastructure and even the development of systems and portals.
