It is a privilege to be part of Nova SBE, a school which has a long tradition of supporting academic freedom. A visionary school where Professors are free to innovate, disagree and agree, express their ideas and opinions without fear of institutional pressures.

Supporting a school with this type of mindset is critical because here lie the foundations to generate breakthrough ideas, challenge tomorrow’s leaders, and ensure that science will progress.
