GeoBioTec is a research group in Portugal

GeoBioTec is a partnership between the Aveiro University (UA, general coordination) and the universities of NOVA de Lisboa (FCT-NOVA) and Beira Interior (UBI). GeoBioTec develops interdisciplinary studies in geophysics, geochemistry, soil, biology, paleontology, petrology, mineralogy, industrial minerals, geomaterials, geotechnics, isotopic geology, hydrogeology, structural geology, volcanology and remote sensing. In January 2018, GeoBioTec integrates 71 researchers (28 from FCT-NOVA) and 72 collaborators (15 from FCT-NOVA) and is organized in five research groups, three with researchers from FCT-NOVA. 

General coordinator: Prof. Fernando Rocha, Aveiro University

Coordinator at FCT-NOVA: Professor Fernando Lidon

The 3 research groups with people of FCT-NOVA are:

Georesources, Geotechnics and Geomaterials (3G) – geological and geotechnical mapping, modelling and geostatistics, prospection, exploitation and processing of geomaterials, risk analysis (PI: Prof. Fernando Rocha, Aveiro University)

Sedimentary Basins and Paleontology (SBP) – sedimentary geology, tectonics, paleontology, biostratigraphy, evolution, global changes, geoheritage (PI: Prof. Paulo Legoinha, FCT-NOVA)

Agro-Forestry (AF) – biofortification, phytoremediation, production and transformation of food raw materials (PI: Prof. Fernando Lidon, FCT-NOVA)
