The invitation to develop activities at UFRGS must be made by a Department, Interdisciplinary Center, Graduate Program, or Academic Unit. The invited professor submits the requested documents to the Graduate Program Committee (Comissão de Pós-Graduação) or to the Unit Research Committee (Comissão de Pesquisa da Unidade), which forwards the registration request for a Visiting Professor through an electronic process to the Division of Research (PROPESQ) or to the Division of Graduate Studies (PROPG).
