2 Introduction Núcleo Ciência Pela Infância seeks to leverage scientific knowledge to inform new strategies that will improve well-being and life outcomes for vulnerable children and support sustainable social and economic development in Brazil.

3 Introduction Healthy child development is the foundation of strong communities, economic prosperity, and a just society A rapidly growing, multi-disciplinary body of scientific evidence shows that early experiences are built into the body and affect biological systems that can influence learning, behavior, and health across the lifespan. New knowledge & advances in the behavioral and social sciences -> new opportunities for more effective strategies to address unmet challenges in education, economic development, health promotion, and social welfare.

Ongoing exchange of faculty and students between Brazilian universities and Harvard University Building a Brazilian scientific community to address early childhood development

8 A large-scale research project to develop a deep understanding of the cultural models that shape how Brazilians think about child development Use this understanding to develop and test effective ways to communicate the science of child development to expand support for more effective policies and programs in Brazil Translating the science for non-scientific audiences

9 A team of Brazilian researchers is engaged in a large-scale research project to develop a deep understanding of the cultural models that shape how Brazilians think about child development Develop and test effective ways to communicate the science of child development to expand support for more effective policies and programs in Brazil.

10 Producing a wide range of publications and educational media that give Brazilian policymakers, practitioners, and the general public multiple ways to engage with and understand the science of early childhood development. INSERT: SUPER CEREBRO Shaping public discourse

11 The translated science forms the basis of a wide range of publications and educational media that give Brazilian policymakers, practitioners, and the general public multiple ways to engage with and understand the science of early childhood development. This dissemination strategy leverages multiple formats and media, including an annual international symposium, a resource-rich web site (ncpi.org.br), working papers, policy briefs, videos, and direct press outreach. Shaping public discourse
