“I applied to the ASSEMBLE Plus program with my colleague Miriam Ruocco to access the Ria Formosa ecosystem. Our experience was highly positive. We thank the CCMAR host for their big support. It was a great experience, where we were able to collect valuable samples in a short time under a pleasant working environment” Emanuela Dattolo, Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Naples, Italy
