This chapter analyses an urban self-management project developed by the partnership between a social housing movement — Movimento Nacional de Luta pela Moradia/MNLM (National Movement of Struggle for Housing) and a public university — Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro/UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) in a land occupation in the metropolitan periphery of Rio de Janeiro. Solano Trindade occupation, located in the peripheral city "Duque de Caxias", has as its main innovation the social movement-university partnership in the collective construction of ways to associate housing and emancipated work through technical and political training. The article presents activities developed in the context of this partnership during the collective production of housing, urban services and agroecological products with alternative technologies, highlighting the interactions between the agents and the tension between scientific and popular knowledge.
