  • Facilities

    DEPARTMENTS CESAM aggregates researchers from 5 Departments from University of Aveiro:  Biology Chemistry Environment and Planning Geosciences Physics.  In 2009, a new group composed mainly by members of Animal Biology Department, University of Lisbon, were accepted into CESAM.   LABORATORIES The 27 laboratiories that constitute CESAM have facilities distributed in an area of more than 10 000 m2. In 2017, CESAM reinforced its infrastructures through ECOMARE -  Laboratory for Innovation and Sustainability of Marine Biological Resources located in Gafanha da Nazaré. The laboratory facilities have all the required equipment to perform research in the areas of physical oceanography, marine geology, meteorology, hydrology, analytical and environmental chemistry, atmospheric pollution, genomics, toxicology, ecotoxicology, biodiversity, ecology and environmental planning and management. More details on some of the available equipments can be seen here.   TECHNICAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES The technical and administrative services of CESAM are located on the 4th floor of Building III - UA.
