O objetivo do trabalho "é estudar os primeiros roteiros de navegação portugueses e espanhóis, que são os primeiros documentos europeus, e possivelmente do mundo, que mostram informações sobre ventos, correntes, geomagnetismo e outros, à escala do planeta, para perceber como essa informação gerou a conceção da Terra como um mundo global".

Formal and informal patterns of globalization in the Early Modern period

Abstract: The talk aims at offering an overview of some recent  individual and team research’ results, focused on the analysis of European, mostly Portuguese Overseas Expansion. It presents cooperation and self-organisation as global patterns taken as essential to the building, sustainability and collapse of European colonial empires in the Early Modern Period. Finally, it aims at giving a glimpse on the role of individuals and informal networks in the building of a global world in the Early Modern Period, according to a bottom-up approach.

Short Bio: Amélia Polónia is a professor at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto, and the scientific coordinator of the CITCEM (Transdisciplinary Research Centre Culture, Space and Memory).

Her main research areas include the history of Portuguese overseas expansion and European colonisation in the Early Modern Era.

Seaports history, migrations, informal mechanisms of empire building, women as brokers and go-betweens and the environmental implications of European colonization are key-subjects of Polónia's.

Um programa de aceleração de ideias e negócios, promovido pela redeSaúde, com candidaturas até 30 de setembro de 2021.

The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the details of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, including, but not exclusive to, public and private stakeholders, students and teachers, and media professionals.

This course aims to evidence the importance of natural history collections for the study of biodiversity, to show new tools and approaches to extract and disseminate biodiversity data from natural history collections and to increase awareness of young researchers for the scientific and cultural value of Natural History Museums.

The course aims at providing an introduction to stable isotopes ratios as tools to understand global, ecosystem and community level bio/geo cycles; light isotopes: H, N, C, O and S isotopes, geo cycles and ecological significance; sampling and analytical methodologies in stable isotope analysis.

EvoS aims at turning evolutionary theory into a common language to areas that pertain to the natural world, including human affairs.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.
