From September 14 to 18, 2015, the first annual research workshop of our project was held in Campinas, Brazil. 25 professors and 20 PhD and Master Students from seven countries and eleven universities presented and discussed different aspects related to the workshop title “New Concepts of Developmentalism: what relevance for the developing world?”
The first day of the workshop students had the opportunity to present their PhD and Master thesis projects, which were commented and discussed by professors and students from other countries. The second day consisted of two methodological sessions held by Ricardo Bielschowsky (Cepal/UFRJ) and Heike Joebges (HTW Berlin). Within seven different sessions on the following two days, thematic presentations on different aspects of the wider project area were held. Luis Carlos Bresser Pereira and André Biancareli presented the key note speeches on concepts of Developmentalism. Related subject areas like housing and service sector, financial systems, inequality, the role of the state in China and Brazil, concepts of Developmentalism, country studies and theoretical approaches were discussed. A visit of the National Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas and of the Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (FIESP) on the last day rounded off the program.
