  • Missão & Objetivos

    [Conteúdo temporariamente apenas disponível em inglês] CESAM - Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies’s mission is to develop leading international research on environmental sciences and related risks, including extreme weather events and climate change, with emphasis on complex socio-ecological coastal systems and marine areas. Bearing in mind the already perceptible changes, the main objective is to promote a more efficient use of terrestrial and aquatic (from catchment to the deep sea) environmental resources and a more competitive, resilient and sustainable economy; designed to endorse job creation and assure territorial and social cohesion. Furthermore, CESAM aims to develop transdisciplinary research and international collaboration among researchers, innovators and students, and foster the scientific, societal and educational (graduate & postgraduate) impact of its research and innovation. CESAM focuses on the key priorities of the European 2020 strategy addressing climate action, environmental integrity, resilience and sustainability (SC5), and optimal and renewable use of biological resources (SC2), as they encompass areas where CESAM has clear scientific competences, aligned with knowledge transfer to the market. CESAM goals are in line with: UN sustainable development objectives for 2030; EU priorities that include the commitment for an intelligent, sustainable and inclusive growth based on knowledge and innovation and the shared pursuit of excellence; the national and Centro-Portugal region research and innovation strategies for smart specialisation (RIS3). CESAM multidisciplinary team gathers researchers, students and collaborators with knowledge and competences in fundamental and applied research, actively contributing to science-based knowledge supporting the understanding and functioning of socio-ecological systems, in relation to local/regional and global changes. The team holds expertise in: modelling and forecasting of atmospheric and hydrodynamic (freshwater, coastal & oceanic) processes; terrestrial and aquatic (including deep sea) biodiversity, ecosystems structure, functions and services, and risk assessment from sub-cellular to ecosystem levels;  development and validation of environmental friendly technologies, analytical chemistry and ecotoxicological methods considering multiple stressors; ‘omics’ technologies and bioinformatics; stakeholder engagement, participatory methods and environmental planning.
