Two institutions embrace the SeverusPT Project, providing the resources and the research teams to support the collection, analysis, evaluation and distribution of fire severity data to the community, strengthening the forest management capacity in Portugal for all stakeholders.

The entities identified below are the proponent and the partner institutions responsible for developing the SeverusPT project.


BIOPOLIS – Program in Genomics, Biodiversity and Land Planning / CIBIO – Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources


Polytechnic Institute of Viana do Castelo – Agronomy High School

These entities make themselves available to civil society, private and public sectors, for collecting, processing and distributing information on the web, making it possible to assess and predict fire severity in mainland Portugal.

In this way, we seek to meet the information needs for post-fire restoration and forest management on different temporal and spatial scales.

BIOPOLIS is a teaming project connecting CIBIO/InBIO to the University of Montpellier and Porto Business School

The BIOPOLIS intends to leverage the Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources from the University of Porto (CIBIO/InBIO/UP) to a Excelence Center in Basic and Environmental Biology, Ecosystem Monitoring and Agrobiodiversity , able to respond to the new challenges posed today in cutting-edge areas such as genetics, computational biology, bioinformatics and environmental monitoring.

BIOPOLIS results from a partnership between CIBIO/InBIO – University of Porto, University of Montpellier and Porto Business School.

The Polytechnic Institute of Viana do Castelo (IPVC), founded in 1980, has as its mission the harmonious development of the human person.

IPVC is located in Alto Minho, a territory where land use and human activities are developed in a tradition of valuing natural resources. Through its Higher Schools, the IPVC aims to pursue high-quality training regarding human, cultural, scientific, technical and professional dimensions. IPVC develops the necessary and appropriate research to pursue its mission and cooperate with the regional community, particularly in its productive fabric and business, in a perspective of permanent dialogue and mutual appreciation.
