About

History

Unicamp was officially founded on October 5, 1966, when the cornerstone was laid. Even compared with other Brazilian universities, the oldest of which was established 70 years ago, Unicamp can be considered a young institution and one that has already developed a strong tradition in education, research and services to society.

Education

Unicamp is an independent and autonomous university in terms of its educational policies, but financially, the university is subordinated to the State Government of São Paulo that provides funds for its operation. Thus, financial resources are derived mainly from the State Government of Sao Paulo and also from national and international institutions that promove the development through education and research.

Research

The project to create Unicamp was a response to the growing demand for qualified personnel in a region of the country - the State of São Paulo - that by the 1960s accounted for 40% of Brazil's industrial capacity and 25% of its economically active population.
