Through a collaboration agreement, the MCTI / CNPq / VALE-ITV #13/2015 - Call for Training of Human Resources in the Mining Sector was conceived and published. This has enabled the selection of 65 scholars from more than 250 candidates in various categories to develop advanced research projects at ITV DS in Belém and at ITV MI in Ouro Preto.

A cooperation agreement with Capes led to the granting of Scholarships for Master's students in Belém and Ouro Preto, with resources transferred by ITV, as well as the CAPES / ITV Notice 20/2016 - POSTDOCTORATE CAPES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM / ITV. This The proposals were aimed at supporting research, technological and innovation projects at ITV through the selection of proposals for the temporary absorption of young doctors, with relative experience in Research, Development, and Innovation (R&D&I), offering them opportunities to carry out research and development projects in strategic areas for ITV.
Twenty Postdoctoral fellowships were made available through two openings for submission of projects and the subsequent selection of fellows.
