Lead institution:

National Science and Technology Institute on Biodiversity of The Blue Amazon – Brazil

Oceans regulate climate and their ecosystems harbour immense biodiversity that has not been fully mapped, quantified and sustainably exploited. Biological diversity represents quality food security and biotechnological potential for solving many challenges.

In-depth knowledge of this immense biodiversity and its dynamic relationship with the environment is of fundamental relevance for identifying and supporting use and conservation strategies. Considering the ocean’s dimensions and complexities, the National Science and Technology Institute on Biodiversity of the Blue Amazon – Brazil (INCT-BAA), in short “INCT Biodiversity of the Blue Amazon”, is a vast Brazilian Project that has established a broad national network of researchers with international collaborators from different fields of knowledge in the scope of converging to specific goals, including basic and applied research, training of human resources qualified in Marine Sciences and scientific dissemination and outreach.
