    Federal University of Lavras (UFLA) has faced many challenges throughout its centennial existence. Presently, universities face a challen-ging scenario with the intensification of transnational ties, the establish-ment of connections and the cre-ation of knowledge networks with worldwide researchers.

    While UFLA reaches new excellence position to keep up with the socie-tal demands, the academic commu-nity gets ready for the era of inter-national academic cooperation. This new challenge requires a reflection both on the role of this university and on the universal character of knowledge.

    Internationalization fosters students and professors mobility, by paving the way to lead them into exchange programs, by strengthening interna-tional ties and by improving proces-ses, which will aim at a double-major. Considering the younger genera-tions expectations, UFLA promotes a worlds new vision, inspiring new interactions and partnerships.

    After all, we are aware that the se-arch for a new quality level requires respect to our tradition, persistence in strategic projects and boldness to show and conquer a new place in the world.

    Come and be part of our commu-nity! You will also feel proud to be UFLA!

    For more than a century, Federal University of Lavras represents a diversified network of people, in-terconnected with the objective of generating knowledge, innovation and the societal development. Since its foundation, as the Agricultural School of Lavras in 1908, and, later, as the Agriculture College of Lavras, UFLA has conquered a prominent position in the national scenario and has been expanding its network of contacts in the global science and innovation context. UFLA goes far beyond the Agricul-tural Sciences

    UFLA is proud to have been a pio-neer in the development of new cultivars and agricultural machinery, in the improvement of rural cons-tructions and in the innovation of

    extension services, with the release of technical and scientific journals that have made history. With a qua-lified faculty and the coordination of major research projects, UFLA has been fostering the development of Brazilian agribusiness.

    However, over the years, it has beco-me an eclectic university. By means of generating and disseminating information and technologies, this University excels in other areas and is consolidated as one of the insti-tutions that most contributes to the expansion of educational frontiers in different knowledge areas.

    Technology and Innovationdidactic and scientific departments work with special emphasis on in-formation articulation and on the complementarity of abilities to allow the generated knowledge to exceed the boundaries of the academy and reach the market by means of inno-vations that can make a difference in societal life quality.

    With the creation of the Technologi-cal Innovation Center, the Technolo-gy-Based Company Incubator and of the Science and Technology Park of Lavras Lavrastec, UFLA prepares itself for the articulation between academy, market and government, representing the fundamental tripod for generating innovations and tech-nologies that will subsidize the pro-gress of future generations.

    UFLA does not stop growingthinking about the future pro-fessionals, the university campus is constantly expanding, aiming at adapting the University infrastruc-ture to the new challenges of cons-tructing knowledge and information society. Classrooms, amphitheaters, themed laboratories, greenhouses and numerous facilities are available to the academic community.

    In order to follow this new dyna-mic scenario, the University library provides more than 300 thousand volumes and several databases for
