Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
This description of Silvio Meira's work was prepared when Silvio Meira was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Dissatisfied with the poor performance of Brazil in the field of information technologies and software development and convinced that the country had enormous creative potential, Silvio Meira created the Recife Centre for Advanced Studies and Systems (CESAR) in 1996. A unique, public-private non-profit institute which has become an extraordinary catalyst to innovation in software development, academic excellence, and private sector investment in the region.
