Teresa Fernandes
Programme Director

Teresa Fernandes, Professor of Environmental Science, studies the fate of contaminants in natural systems and their effects on species and communities. She is particularly interested in ecosystem health, links with human health, and management of risk. Specific subjects of her research have included oil, aquaculture, organic enrichment, endocrine disruptors and nanomaterials. Another important aspect of Teresa's research is the management of aquatic and coastal systems, and the integration of science and policy for the sustainable management of natural systems.

Course programme

The Masters course has a total of 120 ECTS. There are two main components: first a fully integrated taught (Curricular) part of 60 ECTS credits (one year); second a research project leading to a thesis dissertation of 60 ECTS credits (one year). The course is hosted in turn at the European member institutions in subsequent years.

Staff dealing with the regulation of chemicals need an integrated, interdisciplinary view of the lifecycle of chemical substances: the Design, including the most recent technology for the production of alternative materials; the Industry, including a solid understanding of the current economy of chemical industry and the requirements for implementation of new processes; the Market, including understanding the social perception of the risk of chemicals; the Assessment, including a deep understanding of the mechanisms of environmental and human toxicity of chemicals and of the most advanced techniques to evaluate it; and the Regulation, including a thorough knowledge of European and non-European legislation related to the use of chemicals.

The EMMC ChIR covers these five fields essential to understand chemical regulation:
  • Design of chemical products;
  • Industrial implementation of chemical processes;
  • Marketing of chemical substances;
  • Assessment of risks, including toxicological and environmental assessment;
  • International Regulations.
