LA_ARNET Project


ARNET aims to increase the excellence, impact and applicability of scientific production and results related to marine and freshwater research, strengthening national and international cooperation and partnerships (researchers, academics, administration and private companies) to increase success in obtaining competitive funding, promote scientific work, train high-level scientists and leverage its role as a key institution in aquatic and environmental matters, thus orienting ARNET towards the pursuit of the five (5) objectives of the subordinate National Scientific and Technological Policy to five thematic areas of the Research and Innovation Agenda: 1. Agrifood, Forests and Biodiversity, 2. Climate Change, 3. Circular Economy, 4. Space and Earth Observation and 5. Mar.

Conceptually, five specific types of challenges were identified as central themes for the ARNET intervention: scientific, environmental, health (environmental health), economic and social. For each one, a specific objective was established, with the capacity to support and monitor public policies: 1 - Support the development of scientific and technological approaches for the sustainable use of marine, freshwater, estuarine and marine freshwater ecosystems; 2 - Deepen knowledge about the functioning of estuarine and freshwater marine ecosystems, addressing changes that threaten ecological resilience and environmental sustainability; 3 - To promote the good ecological and healthy state of the seas and oceans, estuaries and river basins; 4 - Explore solutions based on biotechnology and nature to encourage better management of aquatic resources; 5 - Promote models of participatory governance and encourage the emergence of a literate oceanic society.
