BIODIVERSITY CHAIR PROMOTES INNOVATION IN ENVIRONMENTAL DNA USE
The EDP Biodiversity Chair, awarded to the University of Porto, and coordinated by CIBIO-InBIO, has been attracting media attention.
 

EDP and the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) will co-finance a set of scientific research dedicated to managing environmental impacts and conserving biodiversity. The Biodiversity Chair focuses on the application of new genomic tools and Environmental DNA - eDNA techniques.

 

The initiative had a first phase between 2012 and 2016 and has contributed to promote scientific innovation, technology and environmental management that can be shared with the entire scientific community, government agencies, the business world and the general public.


The renewal of the EDP Biodiversity Chair for the 2018/20 period is now formalized and will be conducted within the framework of the CIBIO-InBIO research group APPLECOL, led by Pedro Beja, who is also the chairholder.
