FROM NATURE TO PRODUCTS, TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY.

Socio-Ecological Systems

Principal Investigator: Jose Alberto Cardoso Pereira

Researchers: Group Researchers

Socio-ecological Systems The Socio-Ecological Systems group aims to address the following scientific and sustainability challenges:

  • Innovation in the agro-food chains and networks
  • Circular economy in productive sectors in mountain areas
  • Resource use efficiency (inputs, energy, labour) in agriculture, forestry, water management and other fields
  • Multifunctionality of mountain systems and provision of highly valuable ecosystem services
  • Resilience and adaptation and other responses of mountain systems to global change
  • Biodiversity and ecosystem function under global change

This research group is dedicated to productive systems in mountain areas and the products of these systems. All systems addressed in Socio-Ecological Systems produce goods and services. Production goods in this Group are raw materials for Group 2 (Sustainable Processes and Products) where they will be transformed and valorized.

The main research topics of the Group are:
