The Luiz de Queiroz Agricultural Studies Foundation – Fealq is a private, non-profit entity for the administrative and financial management of projects developed between members of the University and public and private institutions, national or foreign.
Affiliated with and recognized by the University of São Paulo – USP, since 1976, the Foundation provides legal, administrative, financial and labor support for carrying out research projects, innovation, events, specializations and courses.
Located in Piracicaba, in the interior of São Paulo, one of the main centers of innovation in Brazilian agribusiness, Fealq maintains branches in Pirassununga, also in the interior of São Paulo and in Londrina, in Paraná, with the management of the Agrozootechnic Experimental Station Hildegard Georgina Von Pritzelwitz /Figueira Farm.
Continuous investments are provided to the Foundation, acting increasingly in the next turn of its partners, supporting everything from the preparation of drafts to the full officialization of the contract with the competent bodies of the University of São Paulo or with a private institution. We also integrate the work offered by the Foundation’s administrative and legal team, in addition to financial management and support for hiring staff, purchasing materials needed for supported projects, making payments and issuing invoices.
They are partners of Fealq in project management, Esalq/USP (Escola Superior de Agricultura Luiz de Queiroz), Cena/USP (Centro de Energia Nuclear na Agricultura), Ccarbon/USP (Centro de Estudos de Carbono em Agricultura Tropical) , STAC/USP (Centro de Agricultura Tropical Sustentável), FZEA/USP (Faculdade de Zootecnia e Engenharia de Alimentos) and, also, the Agrisus Foundation.
Sensitive to the demands of undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as the need for resources to carry out cultural and sporting activities that benefit the community, Fealq maintains, with its own resources, the Support Program aimed at research, infrastructure and improvements, granting grants, extension and community support, with periodic notices available for registration and participation.
The Foundation also has its own publishing company. Editora Fealq, which in addition to publishing physical and digital books, also edits the Revista de Agricultura, one of the oldest in the Brazilian scientific world, with international coverage, today entitled “Brazilian Journal of Agriculture”, where it receives and searches for scientific articles and original works on themes focused on Agricultural, Social and Agribusiness Sciences.
