Research Center
for Natural Resources,
Envioronment and Society


The CERNAS – Research Center for Natural Resources, Environment and Society presents a functional formally assumed organic, where the Scientific Coordinator, the Scientific Council and the Executive Committee are the central organs, determinants of the orientation of our activities. However, as we exist to support the skills of specialists who are part of our structure, we assume a horizontal management with distributed power, in practice, it does not exist a differentiation of powers between the strategic apex and the rest of the organization. We have a flexible structure, which allows a fast and efficient response to changing within interfaces and contexts that we monitor on an ongoing evolutionary perspective.
