Telecom Italia Group will take part in the Brazilian Federal Government's educational program "Science without borders". It will do so by providing funding towards bursaries for the education of Brazilian students and researchers studying in Italy.

The initiative aims to provide bursaries to Brazilian students and researchers intending to specialize their studies abroad in Universities and centres of excellence dedicated to innovation. 

The project is mainly aimed towards Engineering and Computer science students. Telecom Italia Group will provide its own research centres located in Rome, Turin, Trento and Venice and will commit towards 400 six-month internships. 160 of these will be entirely paid for by TIM Brasil, which will also manage the planning of the activities throughout the 4 years of the program.
