A flexible, state-of-the-art, research oriented program.

Prone to interdisciplinary research, combining branches of biology, ecology,

modeling, health, sociology.

Focused on training students in areas of biology/ecology so that these can

effectively counteract human-induced global changes.

All students with compulsory stays of 6+ months on a non-Portuguese


On a case-by-case basis and when a student spends at least 3 semesters in one

of the host non-Portuguese universities, the degree might also be awarded
