• Through donations from Insper partners, chairs facilitate research by renowned academics. Their studies are translated into public policy and applied knowledge that is debated and shared with society. Three projects currently figurehead this partnership between Insper and private institutions: IFB (education, labor market, health and social and environmental impact, among others), Ayrton Senna Institute (public policies for education managers), Unibanco Institute (quality secondary and technical education) and Palavra Aberta Institute (political freedom and freedom of expression).  We also count with a chair dedicated exclusively to research and education in Business Administration, the Chafi Haddad Chair.
