RUI SEABRA WINS FLAD SCIENCE AWARD ATLANTIC 2020
CIBIO-InBIO researcher Rui Seabra won the 1st edition for FLAD's Science Award Atlantic with the project CCTBON – North Atlantic Coupled Coastal Temperature and Biodiversity Observation Network.
 

The researcher will receive 300,000 Euros of funding in 3 years to implement the largest temperature and biodiversity monitoring network in the entire North Atlantic. The project involves the installation of more than 2000 sensors on 85 rocky beaches along the Atlantic Coast thus creating a data collection network, which will be the largest of its kind in the world.


“In addition to recognizing the quality of the scientific activity from researcher Rui Seabra, the award will improve knowledge about the influence of climate change on the ecosystems of tidal coastal zones. And, not least important, the award will allow Portugal to lead the collaboration between a significant number of researchers who, in different Atlantic regions (continental and island), develop works in favor of ocean sustainability”, said Elsa Henriques, administrator of FLAD.

 

With this award, the FLAD intends to stimulate the development of technology and promote the new generation of Portuguese scientists. This award has a great focus on achieving practical results, such as the creation of engineering and technologies, that facilitate our understanding and exploitation of Atlantic ecosystems.
