The mission of the Foundation for Scientific and Technological Development in Health (FIOTEC) is to provide services in logistic, administrative, and financial support for projects developed by the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ) in the fields of science, technology, and innovation in health. FIOTEC is a private, non-profit foundation with administrative and financial autonomy and its own endowment. It is duly accredited by the Brazilian Ministry of Education (MEC) and Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation, and Communications (MCTIC) and is subject to oversight by the Attorney General’s Office and has its action governed by specific legislation. Their vision is to excel daily in the quality of their activities, processes, and competencies, thereby achieving excellence as a support foundation to foster technological innovation in health and human resources training, contributing to improving the quality of life in society. In 1998, 13 founding members established the Foundation for Teaching, Research, Technological Development, and Cooperation in the National School of Public Health (then Fensptec). Since renamed FIOTEC, the Foundation continues to pursue its mission of helping FIOCRUZ do more. In the early years their work was limited to managing projects for the National School of Public Health (ENSP), but in 2002, based on a decision by the 2nd Internal Congress of FIOCRUZ, the Foundation was renamed FIOTEC and assumed the role of single support foundation for FIOCRUZ as a whole. Since then they have worked to ensure the development of health projects in the areas of Research, Teaching and Extension, Stimulus for Innovation, Scientific and Technological Development, and Institutional Development. FIOTEC is a private, non-profit foundation with administrative and financial autonomy and its own endowment. Support foundations were established in Brazil to back project development by Federal agencies. Due to this relationship, they are required to be accredited by the Ministry of Education (MEC) and Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation, and Communications (MCTIC) and are subject to oversight by the Attorney General’s Office, while their work is governed by specific legislation.
