The Multidisciplinary Center for Development of Ceramic Materials was proposed by researchers of Universidade Federal de São Carlos (UFSCar), Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), Universidade de São Paulo (USP) and Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas (IPEN). The activities of the proposed Center are totally focused on the enhancement of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research. The Center was constituted with the multifold mission of encouraging basic and applied research - so that new knowledge can be constantly generated - and promoting a systematic transfer of this knowledge, for technological applications and educational purposes. This continuous process spreads knowledge, enlightens the society through instruction, and feeds back the cycle with more demands, to be satisfied with innovative approaches. To achieve these goals, the Center elects the industry and the schools of all levels as qualified partners for the task.

The main idea of the Center is to formally establish in this country a reference for research and development in ceramics. For this, the Center consolidates an existing infrastructure and improves it to host, as a single and unique institution, the most fundamental necessities of the nation in science, engineering and education, basic and applied research, technology transfer and diffusion of knowledge.

To organize all activities, the Center has three Divisions: the Research Division, the Innovation Division and the Continuous Education and Dissemination Division. Each of them has a Coordinator, responsible for the general objectives of his Division. The Center is managed by an Executive Directory, composed by Director and Deputy Director. Both Directors and the Coordinators are responsible for the guiding lines of the Center, defining programs and taking all necessary actions to maintain the structure of the Center and warrant execution of the projects according to previously established goals. Each Division is further divided in Sectors, each of which supervised by a Responsible Researcher. The chart above depicts the organization of the Center.

In view of the inter-institutional character of the Center, operating in four different campi USP, UNESP, IPEN and UFSCar (headquarters), an internet site (the Center's homepage) will be used to permanently link laboratories, researchers and students, a fast and convenient solution for quotidian communications.

Subsequent charts show in details all Sectors on each Division, exhibiting also all researchers participating on projects of the Sector. The first name on each Sector is the Responsible Researcher.
