Candidates for director of the National Institute for Space Research (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais - INPE) will present their proposals to the members of the Committee appointed by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) to conduct the selection process.
On Nov. 13 (Tuesday) at INPE's headquarters in São José dos Campos (SP), the Committee will meet with the employees of the Institute to listen their expectations for the next administration. Then, they will draw lots to decide the order of the presentations. The 12 candidates are listed below, in alphabetical order:
Decio Castilho Ceballos
Giorgio Eugenio Oscare Giacaglia
Haroldo Fraga de Campos Velho
Horacio Hideki Yanasse
José Marques da Costa
Leonel Fernando Perondi
Luis Antonio Waack Bambace
Marco Antonio Chamon
Mario Marcos Quintino da Silva
Nelson Jorge Schuch
Petronio Noronha de Souza
In the public presentation session, both Committee and audience will not be allowed to make questions to any candidate. The candidates can't accompany the other candidate's presentation, as well as the meeting between Committee's members and employees. Both will take place at Fernando de Mendonça auditorium, in LIT/INPE, and the internal community of the Institute might participate.
But in Dec. 14, the meeting will be closed as the Committee will interview each candidate in a private place. Thereafter, the Committee shall prepare a triple list with the names in descending order of appointment, to be handed over to Minister Aloisio Mercadante.

Learn More About the Selection
The selection process for INPE's Director Post is performed by a Committee of experts, appointed by the Minister Aloizio Mercadante, which receive and evaluate candidates' proposals. This system of choosing leaders has been practiced for over ten years by MCTI to choose Director Posts of all its Research Units.
The selection, which gives rise to a triple list sent to the Minister of MCTI, is always carried out by committees of experts who seek, in the scientific, technological and business community, people related with the technical and administrative guidance established for each institution.
INPE's Committee, chaired by Jacob Palis, president of Brazilian Academy of Sciences (Academia Brasileira de Ciências – ABC), is also composed of Carlos Alberto Aragão de Carvalho Filho, from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and director of the Brazilian Association of Synchrotron Light Tecnology (ABTluS); Carlos Nobre, Secretary for Development and Research Polices and Programs of MCTI (Seped); Humberto Andrade Sobral, from INPE, and Satoshi Yokota, teacher from the Institute for Research, Administration and Planning of São José dos Campos (SP), Brazil.
