EMSO-PT – European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water column Observatory – Portugal

EMSO-ERIC is a European Research Infrastructure that includes several multidisciplinary observatories in the deep ocean field. The main objective of this infrastructure is to monitor environmental processes related to the interaction between the geosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere in real-time and over a large temporal scale. EMSO is distributed across key locations in Europe, covering the Arctic, Atlantic, Mediterranean, and Black Sea. Portugal is one of the 5 founding members, and so far, its participation has focused on the Azores and Cadiz in cooperation with France (Azores) and Italy (Cadiz). The ultimate goal of EMSO-PT is to organize Portuguese participation in EMSO.

PORBIOTA – Portuguese E-Infraestrutura Portuguese for Information and Research on Biodiversity

PORBIOTA is an e-infrastructure for managing biodiversity data within the European e-Science infrastructure for biodiversity and ecosystem research (LifeWatch ERIC), a landmark on the ESFRI Roadmap 2018. Tailored to national needs (research, management, policy, governance, and citizen science) and in line with LifeWatch requirements and other international initiatives, PORBIOTA aims to promote a national biodiversity research agenda while providing services to the scientific community, policymakers, and managers. Additionally, this e-infrastructure seeks to raise awareness of biodiversity in society and encourage greater citizen engagement with science through citizen science initiatives and other projects. The infrastructure is led by a consortium that includes national Research and Development Units, natural history museums, the Portuguese node of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), and the Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests (ICNF), as well as some specific areas (ICOS-PT and LTER Portugal). The LTER site of Ria de Aveiro is one of the areas contributing to this e-infrastructure.
