The Field Work aims to encourage the involvement of FGV EAESP graduate students with innovative experiences in social management and local economic development, the focus being on the areas of public policies, fighting poverty and promoting citizenship.
The project was created in 2005 and is able to count on the support and participation of the Applied Research Centers and Research Groups.
In 2008, the inter-university modality was set up with the Federal University of Acre (UFAC) as a partner.
In 2009, the project was included in the Pro-Adm public notice from CAPES, which allowed this modality to be maintained until 2012.
In 2010, the modality was expanded when the State University of the Acaraú Valley (UVA-CE) and the Government School of the João Pinheiro Foundation (EG-FJP) were included.
