The new Ocean Campus, at Doca de Pedrouços, in Lisbon, will allow the Foundation, through the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, to create a new scientific research center focused on how human beings are being affected by changes in the ever-changing environment. The new campus aim is to bring together several actors and promote and make it possible to take advantage of synergies and deepen new opportunities for collaboration with neighbouring research institutions. The importance of studying the organism and its relationship with microbes brings immediate synergies with the Champalimaud Foundation’s cancer and neuroscience programs and with the study of maritime organisms and their food safety by the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere, two institutions that will also occupy the same campus.
