The Associate Laboratory, CIMAR, was created in March 2002 from two research centres: the Centre of Marine and Environmental Research of the University of Porto (CIIMAR.UP) and the Centre of Marine Sciences of the University of Algarve (CCMAR.UA).

CIMAR is dedicated to research, and to the dissemination and transfer of technology in the area of Marine Sciences.
