GeoBioTec is a research partnership in Portugal

GeoBioTec, GeoBioSciences, GeoTechnologies and GeoEngineering is a scientific research partnership between the Aveiro University (UA, general coordination), the NOVA School of Science and Technology (NOVA FCT) and the Universidade da 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 2020, GeoBioTec integrates 80 researchers (33 from NOVA FCT) and 72 collaborators (15 from NOVA FCT) and is organized in five research groups, three with researchers from NOVA FCT.

The 3 research groups with people of NOVA FCT are:

• Agroindustrial Technology (AT) – biofortification, phytoremediation, production and transformation of food raw materials (PI: Profª. Manuela Simões, NOVA FCT)

Georesources, Geotechnics and Geomaterials (3G) – geological and geotechnical mapping, modelling and geostatistics, prospection, exploitation and processing of geomaterials, risk analysis (Coordinator at NOVA FCT: Prof. José António Almeida; Coordinator at Aveiro University: Prof. Fernando Rocha)

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