The Center for Studies and Environmental Research (NEPAM), established in 1987, aims to undertake interdisciplinary research on environmental issues, perform interventions on environmental problems, and conduct teaching in the environmental area Unicamp, integrating the community at large. It is one of the interdisciplinary centers of the State University of Campinas, and was created to promote the collaboration of experts from different fields of knowledge in problems that require an integrated and interdisciplinary approach. Research staff at NEPAM are all doctors; the center also has several research associates, mainly professors and researchers from other units from Unicamp, and graduate students, and undergraduate research fellows, as well as visiting researchers.

Collaboration with other entities and bodies of the environmental area is considered a priority by NEPAM. Part of our research is done in cooperation with other units of Unicamp, and other universities and institutes of national and international research. There is also the experience of over a decade in partnerships aimed at solving problems and the transfer of knowledge, with government agencies at the municipal, state and federal levels, and NGOs.

NEPAM research is developed in several regions of Brazil – including the Amazon and Atlantic Forest, and other Latin American countries (like Chile, Peru and Uruguay). Projects carried out by staff at the center cover many different issues related to the environment, from the characterization, conservation and management of biodiversity, to the social, demographic, economic, political sciences and institutional sustainability.

The results of this research are made available through scientific publications, as well as its incorporation into the teaching material and content aimed at teaching students of all levels (including from other universities).
