The mission of the Biomedicine Research Centre (CBMR) at the University of Algarve is to improve our understanding and treatment of human diseases, as well as maintaining health. The CBMR has earned a reputation as a benchmark research centre in southern of Portugal and is one of the founding members of the Academic Centre for Biomedical Research and Training in the Algarve (ABC), a consortium focused on both the CMBR’s research activities and on the activities of the University of Algarve Hospital Centre (CHUA), which works locally to improve health through teaching and research. The CBMR offers a range of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and equipment for innovative biomedical research, with dedicated technicians and support services, including a fully equipped microscopy unit, a flow cytometry unit and a vivarium that fully complies with the animal health and welfare legislation in force.

The CBMR has been very productive regarding high impact articles, project applications and involvement in national and international contact networks. We are also committed to providing a teaching and learning experience aimed at research for students of medicine and biomedical sciences. The CBMR's strategy is to transform society through a science of excellence, closely aligned and integrated into the University of Algarve’s research, cooperation and internationalisation strategy.

The MED - Mediterranean Institute for Agriculture, Environment and Development's main mission is to promote the sustainability of ecosystems and food security, for territorial cohesion and well-being.

The unit’s research focuses on eight thematic areas: Olive Groves and Olive Oil; Viticulture and Oenology; Horticulture; Animal Production and Health; Oak Groves; Irrigated Agriculture; Biodiversity; and Rural Dynamics and Governance; the aim is to answer questions and problems that arise in practice and, above all, are related to the new reality in the face of climate change.

Excellence in research is sought, producing solid scientific and technological knowledge, but also solutions for the sustainability of agro-ecosystems, environment and territories.

The CINTESIS - Centre for Research in Health Technologies and Services is a large Research and Development (R&D) unit whose mission is to find answers and solutions, in the short term, for specific health problems, without ever losing sight of the balance between cost and efficiency.

Headquartered at the University of Porto, the CINTESIS is proud of its multicentric, decentralised and flexible nature, with a structure that includes 46 partner institutions (29 higher education institutions, 12 hospitals/health institutions and 5 health companies) and hubs at 6 higher education institutions, more specifically at 5 universities (University of Porto, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, University of Aveiro, University of Algarve and University of Madeira) and 1 polytechnic (Escola Superior de Enfermagem do Porto - Porto School of Nursing).

In total, the centre brings together more than 500 researchers, in 24 research groups working on 3 major thematic lines: Preventative Medicine & Societal Challenges (LT1), Clinical and Translational Research (LT2) and Data Science, Decision & Information Technologies (LT3).

The CENSE - Centre for Research on the Environment and Sustainability promotes interdisciplinary research in environmental sciences and engineering, focusing on the interaction between human and ecological systems, to promote sustainable development. The centre is the research arm of a broader organisation, including researchers, students and staff at the NOVA School of Science and Technology, as well as several affiliated organisations.

The CENSE develops its activities through the promotion of research projects, extension initiatives, training programmes, collaboration with public and private organisations, dissemination of results and dialogues between science and politics. The CENSE's research is divided into five thematic areas: Ecological Economy and Environmental Management, Energy and Climate, Computing for Sustainability, Green Resources and Technologies, and Sustainable Water, Waste and Resource Recovery.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Archaeology and Evolution of Human Behaviour (ICArEHB) is a research centre based at the University of Algarve (Southern Portugal). It brings together a group of foreign and national researchers whose main goal is to conduct research and contribute to a better understanding of the evolution of human behaviour from an archaeological and anthropological perspective.

The research is organised into four groups - prehistoric coastal adaptations, African archaeology and human evolution, the development of complex societies and the history of archaeological science - focusing mainly on the emergence of anatomically modern humans, hunter-gatherer coastal adaptations, the development of complex societies, and African archaeology, using different disciplines and methodological approaches, such as geoarcaheology, wear and tear analysis, zooarchaeology, palaeobotany and GIS. Currently, ICArEHB members are actively participating in a large number of projects taking place in Europe and Africa.

We can synthesise the ICArEHB's previous research into two main themes ORIGINS and ADAPTATIONS, while the current research is aimed at investigating issues related to DISPERSION and MOBILITY:

HOMINID DISPERSION 

Our aim is to understand the paths and dynamics of hominid migration to Eurasia, including the first migrations of the genus Homo and the later dynamics of dispersion of AMH.

DISPERSION ALONG THE COASTAL ROUTES

The evolutionary significance of coastal configurations is a longstanding debate, with hypotheses of coastal environments as engines for the initial bipedalism, as well as chosen paths for human migrations. The ICArEHB will explore these topics with ongoing and innovative fieldwork, targeting the Mio-Pliocene and Pleistocene contexts in Africa (namely, Mozambique and South Africa) and along the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula.

MOBILITY IN FOOD-PRODUCING SOCIETIES

The ICArEHB will conduct studies that deal with the application of isotopic markers and studies of ancient DNA to map the origin and movement of humans, plants and domestic animals in Western Europe and Africa.

The CIMA's mission is to promote scientific knowledge and innovation in the area of the sea and the environment, in order to contribute to sustainable, integrated and intelligent development, in line with the European Union's priority research themes for 2020, namely those related to climate action, sustainable ecosystems and environmental resources.

To fulfil its mission, the CIMA intends to contribute to improving the efficient use of terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems (including the deep sea) in order to promote economic and sustainable development, job creation and national cohesion.

Another of the CIMA's major objectives is to contribute to the knowledge, prevention and mitigation of regional and global changes and associated natural risks. In addition to scientific competence, this task involves the ability to transmit knowledge to society and thus contribute to economic development.

The Adult Education and Community Intervention Research Centre (CEAD) is the first R&D Unit in Portugal to be dedicated exclusively to this area of knowledge. The CEAD's mission is to promote and carry out research activities in adult education and community intervention, in order to build and disseminate scientific knowledge of educational and social usefulness, as well as to support planning and decision-making processes covered by such themes. In view of the reduced volume of research in adult education in Portugal, and the lack of systematisation of available information, we want to build a centre that is flexible and open to researchers from all over Portugal who are interested in cooperating to support of this mission.
