A machine learning-based forecasting system for shellfish safety (Matisse)

Type: National Project Project

Duration: from 2020 Apr 01 to 2023 Sep 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: Nova.ID.FCT da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (University)

Development of a functional prototype for predicting shellfish contamination. In particular: 1) supporting the shellfish production sector through prediction of toxins and faecal contamination and anticipating changes to harvesting permissions, and 2) supporting the Public Administration by improving the characterization of the shellfish production areas and providing tools for a more adequate harvesting licensing and sustainable use of the coastline.
