What is the difference between the Centro DTIBR Association and the Study Group DTI-UFMG?
The Study Group in Law, Technology and Innovation (known by the Portuguese initials DTI-UFMG) is a group duly registered at the Department of Civil, Procedural and Commercial Law of the UFMG Law School and at the NIEPE (group registering unit) of the same institution. It is one of the permanent study groups at the Law School and was founded in 2018 by law students under the supervision of Professor Leonardo Parentoni. Its scope is to conduct student-run scientific activities related to the multiple interactions between Law and Technology. Participation is free and open to professionals from any knowledge field, both undergraduate or already graduated, as long as they get aproved in the selection process, according to the bid periodically published on this webiste.
Differently, the Research Center on Law, Technology and Innovation - DTIBR is a civil association, a nonprofit separate legal entity. It was founded in 2019 with the scope of facilitating the development of new activities, with greater autonomy and speed. Specially to fostering the integration between academics, market sector and civil society, in a genuinely innovative environment.
It is worth emphasizing that it is an independent legal entity in relation to the Study Group DTI-UFMG or any activities related to the aforementioned Law School, without prejudice to eventually develop joint projects.
