FCT gave the Classfication of EXCELLENT to the Center for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes (CE3C), in which the Azorean Biodiversity Group is now belonging.

Ce3C’s main objective is to perform research that addresses societal challenges in ecology, evolution and the environment—the three Es in the Centre’s name, for the 2015-2020 period covering the EU 2020 Horizon. Our 19 integrated members with Ph.D., plus Ph.D. students and collaborators will be now part of a large research centre, based in Lisbon, with 101 integrated members in which research questions will be addressed at both the continental and insular scales. We aim also to create an international recognized "Island Lab" for the study of terrestrial insular ecosystems.

We will also keep our Regional unity.
