LTER Portugal presents eLTER research at three events

25 January 2023

The research team of LTSER Estuaries, Portugal, participated at an event in November to mark National Day of the Sea. The event, which was held at the Centro de Artes e Espetáculos, Figueira da Foz, focused on the valorisation of aquatic resources from the river to the sea. The team presented work undertaken in projects conducted around the Mondego estuary LTSER platform that have addressed the valorisation and sustainability of marine resources.

Estuarine systems such as Mondego estuary are biodiversity-rich and provide many ecosystem services, mainly to the local population. The research team also presented their work at another event in November, the INOvC+ Smart Innovation Technology meeting held at the University of Aveiro.

The Portuguese Ecological Society (SPECO) also presented the LTER Portugal documentaries at the SFE2-GfÖ-EEF joint meeting - Ecology & Evolution: New perspectives and societal challenges - held last November 2022 in Metz, France.

The documentaries attracted a lot of interest at the EEF stand, where dissemination materials from each Ecological Society of the Federation were showcased. The documentaries proved to be an excellent instrument for communication and dissemination, taking the LTER/LTSER concept and its importance further.
