About the Modal Institute
The Modal Institute is a private and non-profit Science and Technology Institution (ICT), which arose from the convergence between information and technology researchers, entrepreneurs and professionals with extensive experience in the private sector.
RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT & INNOVATION
We have a strong presence in RD&I in several sectors. These are studies, analyzes, projects for implementing solutions and other actions that bring great impact to people and the market.
Transport operations are mainly focused on solutions for road freight transport and urban mobility.
The search for the development of clean and renewable energy solutions guides this line of action, with a focus on developing models for new businesses and sustainable use of energy.
Some regions of Brazil still have extremely poor conditions in water and sanitation. The solutions developed in this area seek to find new models, services and products that contribute to improving people's lives and regional development.
Industrial activity is one of the main focuses of Modal. Projects such as industrial automation, improvement of energy efficiency and predictive analysis are among the researches developed to serve national and international industries.
DISTANCE LEARNING AND EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES
Distance learning and educational technologies are tools for professional training and personal development. Our projects focus on adopting distance education solutions, preparing and creating content and distance learning projects.
What do we do?
Our main focus is the research and proposition of solutions based on techniques and tools of Artificial Intelligence oriented towards promoting new business, opportunities and social equity in private and public sectors, and to the general population.
