DescriptionThe Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the Engineering School of the Universidade de Lisboa is Portugal's main Engineering School with about 7000 undergraduate students and 2000 graduate students. Research activities IST are organized into Research Centres and Institutes. MARETEC is IST's multidisciplinary research centre, coordinated by Prof. Ramiro Neves (www.maretec.org and www.mohid.com). MARETEC’s main activities are numerical modelling applied to aquatic environmental problems, monitoring and data management. Since 2009, Maretec has invested in operational modelling and nowadays provides daily modelling results for circulation, ecology and waves for the Portuguese Coastal waters and watersheds at different scales (http://forecast.maretec.org). The Maretec research centre is partner of several international working groups as the Ireland-Biscay-Iberia Regional Operational Oceanographic System (IBI-ROOS, http://www.ibi-roos.eu), the ICES Working Group on Operational Oceanographic Products for Fisheries and Environment (WGOOFE, http://groupsites.ices.dk/sites/wgoofe/Pages/default.aspx) and the Coastal Ocean and Shelf Seas Task Team (COSS-TT, https://www.godae-oceanview.org/science/task-teams/coastal-ocean-and-shelf-seas-tt/) being the host of the last meeting in September 2015. Currently, I’m involved as a partner in two MRE European projects (Energymare and Turnkey) and it is providing waves, currents and atmospheric forecast to some Portuguese companies and evaluating the available energy resources for Portugal but with a technology feasible that could be applied to any other part of the planet. This data is being designed to supply services as operation and maintenance for MREs. These tools are also provided through one of the group spin-off Action Modulers (http://www.actionmodulers.com).
