INNOVATE™ Curitiba

Over a century ago, the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz) was established to take care of the health of the Brazilian population. Over the years, the Foundation has become known for its unique blend of traditional and innovative approaches to healthcare.

In Curitiba, the Carlos Chagas Institute, which is a branch of Fiocruz in Paraná state, fulfills its mission of promoting public health through excellent science and technology combined with innovation. The institute, established in 2009, combines its secular commitment to public health with innovative solutions to long-debated health problems. Research, education, technological development, and scientific communication produced at Fiocruz Paraná are driven to strengthen the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS), another great innovation from Brazil.

Fiocruz Paraná is part of the innovation ecosystem of Curitiba, integrating the Health Technology Park, and contributes daily with its intellectual and human capital to what it envisions to become the largest innovation hub in South America, as it resembles it in many ways.

Associated with the goals of Agenda 2030, Fiocruz Paraná focuses on promoting health and well-being of the population, reducing inequalities, and providing quality education – all of which are Sustainable Development Goals that form the foundation of smart cities.
