In the University of Évora, the work will be developed by the research unit ICAAM: Institute for Mediterranean Agrarian and Environmental Sciences. The mission of ICAAM is to develop research to assess and support the sustainability of Mediterranean agriculture and related ecosystems, from field to policies. ICAAM research is grounded in an interdisciplinary and multilevel systemic approach to agriculture and rural territories, as well as associated processes and impacts in the environmental, social and economic dimensions. In the context of the complexity of Mediterranean production systems and their territorial integration, research progresses through methodological innovation and, beyond interdisciplinarity, also transdisciplinarity, based on close interaction with practitioners at different scales.
University of Évora will actively participate to the whole project work through all work packages, sharing the responsibilities and knowledge related to management, development, implementation, quality assurance, dissemination and exploitation of project results. Other roles include:
· participation in meetings
· organization of specific meetings
· provide support and guidance to other partners
· providing timely information for reporting
