In this area there are relevant themes in the Center's research, such as research in environmental health, which have not yet established themselves as research disciplines with human capacity and infrastructure. For the implementation of specific studies on these themes, the Center will continue to provide support and establish partnerships with already specialized institutions. Therefore, a priori, specific objectives will not be established for this area.
