The Collaboratory for Geosciences (C4G) is a distributed research infrastructure that promotes networking of researches and sharing of equipment, data, collections and tools in Solid Earth Sciences (SES).
C4G comprises the disciplines of geology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, geodesy, geophysics, geomechanics and geomathematics, and will provide services in the transversal areas of georesources, natural hazards and the environment.
C4G is led by UBI, and includes all the relevant SES players in Portugal. It was recently in the national roadmap.
