FoRC - Food Research Center
For many years researchers at the University of São Paulo have planned to create the first Brazilian multidisciplinary research center focused on Food Science and Nutrition.
This goal was achieved in 2013 with the launch of the Food Research Center (FoRC), one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) supported by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
