    Environmental biosciences and biomonitoring

    Our mission is to conduct high quality research and education that supports sustainable development, preserving the environment and the human usage of natural resources, in accordance with the development goals adopted by the United Nations. We cover a broad range of research actions, often multidisciplinary, and collaborate with both public and private actors of any size at the regional, national and international level. Our vision is to acquire fundamental knowledge through our research areas that will provide solutions for a sustainable future and integrated education providing human knowledge for the next generation.

    MAJOR FOCUS AREAS:

    • Greenhouse and Trace Gasses
    • Microbial Bio-Geo-Chemistry
    • Water Quality
    • Environmental Toxicology
    • Marine Biology and Ecology
    • Freshwater Biology and ecology
    • Nature Management
    • Disease Biology
