Scientific and Technological Initiation

Bahiana Banner New Site Scientific Initiation

All undergraduate students at Bahiana who wish to enter the research area and develop scientific thinking can join the Scientific and Technological Initiation Programs.

Check out how to enter Scientific Initiation (CI) and Technological Initiation (IT): 

Scientific and Technological Initiation Center (NICTEC)
The Scientific and Technological Initiation Nucleus, a sector linked to the Dean of Research, Innovation and Graduate Studies Stricto Sensu of Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública, was created to encourage and accompany undergraduate students in the process of scientific investigation and technological innovation, based on the Institutional Program for Scientific and Technological Initiation Scholarships (PIBICT) and the Institutional Voluntary Program for Scientific and Technological Initiation (PIVICT).

Among the objectives of NICTEC are:

  • stimulate the critical and investigative spirit of future health professionals;
  • awaken the scientific vocation and encourage potential talent among undergraduates;
  • provide theoretical and practical learning in the development of a scientific or technological research project;
  • contribute to the training of human resources, for research and innovation;
  • promote integration of undergraduate and graduate studies;
  • generate new knowledge in the academic sphere.

A Bahiana has three modalities of Scientific and Technological Initiation (IC/IT): 

  • IC/IT volunteer: The student will not receive financial remuneration, however, will enjoy all academic and scientific benefits related to the work, including evidential certification.
  • IC/IT scholarship holder: the student receives a funded scholarship, which may come from research funding sources and partner institutions, linked to research projects applied by professors or even granted by the institution's own scholarship policy.

Interested students enter, exclusively, by selection via public notice (scholarship) or call (volunteer), available here on our website, based on the requirements of funding agencies for conducting research.

  • IC Júnior: aimed at high school students, it consists of projects developed by guiding teachers from the Bahiana, through the concession of an institutional quota and CNPq. Currently, students are selected through a partnership between the institution and the Youth Center for Science and Culture (CJCC) of the Bahia Department of Education.

We also have the Scientific Initiation Virtual Space in the Virtual Learning Environment (AVA) of Bahiana. In this virtual room, students and professors linked to the Programs will have access to the general guidelines of IC/IT, as well as information and clarification regarding the academic procedures of the Scientific and Technological Initiation Nucleus - NICTEC, with the advantage of the quality of the digital tools. are available at our institution.
