The Centre for Advanced Studies of Blanes (CEAB) is a centre of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), which depends on the Ministry of Science and Innovation. Founded in October 1985, the CEAB holds research activities on Freshwater and Marine Biology and Ecology, from organism genetic and biochemical make-up to population and ecosystem structure and dynamics. The general research aims of the CEAB are to identify the diversity of organisms and to understand their functions and interactions in nature, with the eventual application of this knowledge to the rational use and management of the natural resources of our planet and in the forecast of responses to environmental changes. The CEAB attempts to become an institute of international reputation and a national focal point in Marine Biology, Limnology and Ecology. The aim is to develop a conceptually solid, technically updated and innovative research, contributing to the advancement of fundamental knowledge and its application to handle the environmental challenges of a sustainable society.
