The Research Commission at the School of Communication and Arts (Escola de Comunicação e Artes (ECA)) of the University of São Paulo (USP) has connected its different departments with various areas of activity, in order to establish a concept of research which is common, wide, diversified, and flexible, including not only the development of creativity and theoretical thinking but also of artistic and scientific production, linking reflection and action.

The Research Commission also seeks to highlight the successes already achieved and to spread relevant information to help research teams and individual researchers to achieve and consolidate their objectives.
