The European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC) is Europe’s ‘research infrastructure’ for marine biological resources. It provides access to marine resources, as well as cutting-edge services and facilities that allow researchers, from both academia and industry, to study the ocean and develop innovative solutions to tackle societal issues.

This research infrastructure is a joint venture of leading marine stations and research centres across 9 European member coutries, including Portugal. The EMBRC-PT is the Portuguese component of the EMBRC. It is coordinated by CCMAR and also includes CIIMAR, ACOI and IMAR/Azores.
