Vale Institute of
Vale Institute of Technology (ITV) was created to point out trends, opportunities or problems in the areas of science and technology, on an ongoing quest to identify the best ways to provide mineral resources to modern life.
In 2013, ITV had its first professional master's degree approved by CAPES – the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education, with the aim of training professionals capable of addressing issues related to the sustainable use of natural resources, in addition to attracting and developing talent with mining-oriented skills. The course is the first of its kind to be offered by an institute linked to a company in the mineral sector and has two lines of research – Sustainability in Mining and Sustainable Use of Biological Resources.
The research and development operation is based on three pillars:
Education: development and qualification of technical-scientific knowledge through professional specialization and academic master's and PhD courses, in addition to scientific initiation and extension activities.
Research: promotion, dissemination and implementation of mining and sustainable development research, technology and innovation.
Entrepreneurship: training of entrepreneur-researchers prepared to lead technology-based companies or technology transfer processes arising from research.
