The Environment & Society Research Group is headed by Dr. Celia Dias-Ferreira and brings together a group of experts on chemistry, environment, ecology, economy and rural development, to conduct innovative and forefront research.

Our common interest is to improve production systems, decrease the ecological footprint of processes and promote networking between the companies/technicians and researchers in central region of Portugal to endorse environmental, economic and social sustainability.
