The National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) is an agency linked to the Ministry of Science and Tecnologia (MCT), dedicated to the promotion of scientific and technological research and to the formation of human resources for research in the country. Its history is directly linked to the scientific and technological development of Brazil.

The functional structure of CNPq comprehends an Executive Board of Directors, responsible for the management of the institution, and a Deliberative Council, responsible for the institution's policies.

In addition to the participation in these bodies, the Brazilian scientific and technological community also takes part in the management of policies by means of the Thematic and Advising Committees.
