GROUP OF SCHOOLS PADRE BARTOLOMEU DE GUSMÃO
After the 25th of April, the former Josefa de Óbidos Industrial and Commercial School was then renamed Josefa de Óbidos Secondary School, teaching the 3rd cycle of Basic and Secondary Education. Today it is the headquarters of the Padre Bartolomeu de Gusmão School Group with students from Pre-School to Secondary.
The Basic School of the 1st Cycle with Kindergarten Engenheiro Ressano Garcia was founded in 1911, shortly after the implementation of the Republic, being therefore one of the oldest schools in activity in Lisbon. Currently, like all official schools, the School covers all children in its area of influence, which encompasses four parishes: Santo Condestável, Prazeres, Santa Isabel and Lapa. He recently joined the Bartolomeu de Gusmão School Group based at the Josefa de Óbidos Secondary School.
AL BELO CORREIA SEED BANK
The AL Belo Correia Seed Bank, of the National Museum of Natural History and Science, is a conservation and research infrastructure whose main objective is the long-term conservation of Portuguese flora seeds. The conservation of endangered species is a priority and makes it possible to implement the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation in Portugal. The collection thus constitutes insurance against the extinction of plants in their natural habitat, providing seeds for the rehabilitation of habitats and the reintroduction of species or reinforcement of their populations. It is also a source of material of controlled origin and quality for scientific research. It is the only national member of ENSCONET-The European Native Seed Conservation Network, a European consortium that brings together 30 seed banks of native species.
The project that takes place at the University of Coimbra, led by historian Dulce Freire, is funded by the European Research Council. ReSEED aims to analyze the transformations in agriculture historically associated with cultivated seeds, the environment and human action since the 18th century. The study will contribute to understanding the socio-economic and ecological impacts of the spread in Europe of food products from the new worlds. The research focuses on the Iberian Peninsula, which was the gateway for many of these seeds to the old continent. The main objectives are to build a historical geography of local seeds grown in Portugal and Spain; mapping the social and institutional networks that allowed the circulation of old and new seeds; and identify innovations related to changes in regional agriculture.
