29 Oct Marine Sciences at CCMAR
This week we travelled to the Algarve for a great training session on our new reach-in chambers, equipped with special LED lighting and protective coating, ready for algae and microalgae research at Centre of Marine Sciences (CCMAR), our partner for more than 20 years.
The Algarve Centre of Marine Sciences (CCMAR-Algarve) is one of the foremost marine science research centres in Portugal, gathering experts in the fields of marine biology, ecology, oceanography, environmental sciences, biotechnology, fisheries and aquaculture.
With a multidisciplinary team of about 250 scientific researchers, well-equipped marine facilities and laboratories, and facilitated access to important marine and coastal ecosystems, CCMAR-Algarve aims to promote multidisciplinary research and education related with the marine environment, with emphasis on the processes of environmental change that affect marine ecosystems.
We’ll have more news to share as soon as the researchers get hands-on work with the new chambers!
