But in addition to solid theoretical training, contact with practice is central to this cycle of studies. ISPA has been working closely with public institutions, companies, and non-governmental organizations with activities in the field of marine conservation for many years, and the basic studies that justified the creation of the Professor Luiz Saldanha Marine Park in the Arrábida Natural Park were carried out by ISPA. This applied component of the management of marine ecosystems is supported by the ISPA Biosciences Center, being an asset of this course when compared with other similar ones existing in Portugal allowing students to apply their knowledge in practice during the two years of master's training.
