NISSAN INSTITUTE LAUNCHES 1st CONTEST FOR SOCIAL PROJECTS
September 12, 2018
Institutions have until October 20 to submit projects
The Nissan Institute has launched its first public contest for social projects, to provide up to R$1,650,000 to initiatives focused on social transformation. The projects to be supported must be related to one of the organization’s four pillars – Vocational Training, Technology and Innovation, the Environment, and Mobility – and they should preferably feature education as a cross-cutting theme.
“The public contest is a new development for the institute, which recently turned five years old and is restructuring its method of operating and allocating its resources. The aim is to make its investments more transparent, engage in more direct dialogue with organizations, and form partnerships with large positive impacts for the communities where projects are conducted,” says Rosane Santos, the Nissan Institute’s president and Nissan’s social responsibility and sustainability manager.
The Nissan Institute operates in the regions where its sites are based, so the public contest focuses on the following municipalities and metropolitan regions: Rio de Janeiro (Rio de Janeiro), Resende (Rio de Janeiro), São Paulo (São Paulo) and Curitiba (Paraná). The full list of municipalities covered by the contest can be seen in the public notice.
In all, six projects will be chosen. They must present innovative and creative solutions on the proposed subjects, which are considered a priority for both the institute and the country. Funding will begin in 2019 and it will last one year.
