Nature Index 2020 – CESAM in 2nd place (national level) in the Earth and Environmental Sciences area
Published in 22/5/2020
The Associated Laboratory CESAM - Center for Environmental and Marine Studies – holds the second place nationally in the Earth and Environmental Sciences area, according to the “Nature Index 2020” (share 2.04), therefore key to the 2nd place held by the University of Aveiro in this area (share 3.94). The University of Lisbon holds the first position (4.94; Instituto Dom Luiz - IDL share 3.55) and the University of Porto is third place (2.40). The Nature Index 2020 Annual Tables “highlight the institutions and countries that dominated high quality research in the natural sciences in 2019 as tracked by Nature Index”. This positioning confirms, once again, the quality and importance of CESAM's research in the environmental area, with a similar share to the University of Porto as a whole (2.04 versus 2.40) and only lower than the share of University of Lisbon.
