Nesta área encontram-se temáticas relevantes na pesquisa do Centro, como por exemplo a pesquisa em saúde ambiental, que ainda não se estabeleceram como disciplinas de pesquisa com capacidade humana e de infraestrutura. Para a implementação de estudos específicos nestas temáticas, o Centro continuará a prestar apoio e estabelecer parcerias com instituições já especializadas. Assim sendo, a priori não serão estabelecidos objectivos específicos para esta área.
