Currículo Resumido

António Manuel Nunes Mateus earned his Geology Degree, PhD (Geology ¿ Metallogeny) and Habilitation (Geology ¿ Crystallography, Mineralogy and Metallogeny) from the University of Lisbon in 1985, 1995 and 2004, respectively. He is full professor of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (FCUL) since 2006, and member of the Research Group 3 (Solid Earth Dynamics, Hazards and Resources) of the Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL). His research interests cover different topics, mostly in interface fields between mineralogy, geochemistry, ore-forming processes and tectonics, mineral exploration, rock deformation and fractals in geosciences. Currently, he is Coordinator of the PhD programme in Geology of FCUL and Co-coordinator of the Thematic Line 3 of IDL (Earth Resources for a Sustainable Development). He participated actively in various research projects (competitive funding), acting as Principal Investigator in some of them. He was involved and coordinated of several research contracts with industry, standing out those established with SOGEO, INOVA and Geoterceira (Azores) aiming high enthalpy reservoirs and characterization of geothermal systems, respectively, as well as those developed with Iberian Resources SA (Portugal), Rio Narcea Gold Mines SA (Portugal), Lundin Mining Corporation (Portugal), EPOS (Portugal), Genius Mineira Lda (Angola) and Syrah Resources (Mozambique) concerning mineral exploration, ore characterization and mineral economy. He supervised or co-supervised 8 Final Projects (Geology Degree), 6 Advanced Training Projects (Post-graduate Courses in Applied Geology), 26 MSc Theses (Geology and Economic Geology), 4 PhD Theses (Metallogeny), all completed; on-going supervisions: 2 PhD. He served as: Vice-President of the Scientific Council of FCUL, from Jan.2000 to Jan.2002; Vice-President of the National Institute of Industrial Engineering and Technology, from May2003-Apr.2004; Head of the Geology Department at FCUL, from Nov.2007-Jul.2009; Coordinator of the Chemical Geodynamics Group of the Centre of Geology of University of Lisbon, from Jul.2009-Jul.2015; Member of the Directive Board of the Lisbon Doctoral School on Earth System Science, from Jun.2013-Jun.2015; Coordinator of the MSc Programme in Economic Geology of the University of Lisbon, from Sept.2009 -Jul.2018; Member of the Management Board of the "Portugal Mineral Resources" Competitive Cluster, from Dec.2016-Dec.2019; President of the School Council of FCUL, from Jan.2018-March2022. During the 2013-2015 period he was Special Visiting Researcher at University of São Paulo, Brazil (¿Science Without Frontiers¿ Programme, Brazil). He was also member of the: WG5 (Development Cooperation, Public education, Teaching) of ERA-MIN (European Research Area ¿ Network on the Industrial Handling of Raw Materials for European Industries), Feb.2012-Dec.2013; Ad hoc Working Group on Critical Raw Materials, representing Portugal, European Commission (Enterprise and Industry Directorate-General), Raw Materials Supply Group, Jun.2013-May2014 and Sept.2015-Sept.2017; Technical Support Group on Portuguese Priorities for the 1st Calls of Horizon 2020 under the Societal Challenge Climate Action, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials, Sept.2013-Jun.2018; Operational Group 1 (Exploration) of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials (EIP-Raw Materials), Feb.2015-Jun.2017; several External Advisory Commissions (CAE) designated by A3ES (Portuguese Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education); and many evaluation panels of applications (research projects, PhD grants, FCT Investigator grants, bilateral cooperation programmes). He has also activity as an editorial board member and publication refereeing for various journals.
