Our research areas


From cutting-edge advancements in AI and machine reasoning to in-depth explorations of environmental sustainability, ecosystem accounting, and beyond, our research topics reflect our commitment to addressing pressing global challenges and advancing knowledge for the betterment of society.

Semantic Modelling

A new approach to semantic annotation enables FAIR data and model integration through the Semantic Web paradigm.

Capacity Building

We offer training on integrated modelling and its use to address and solve sustainability problems.


To provide the most up-to-date information about our achievements, projects, research, and initiatives.

Natural Capital

To understand, value, and effectively manage ecosystems and their services.

Conservation & Restoration

To help preserve biodiversity, maintain ecosystem services, and mitigate climate change.

Ecosystem Services

To quantify the benefits nature provides to society, guide policies for sustainable development, and enhance resilience to environmental change.

Marine Biodiversity

To assess the health, functioning and value of marine ecosystems, guide conservation and inform restoration efforts to safeguard ocean health and resilience.

Climate Mitigation & Adaptation

To comprehend, address, and prepare for the impacts of climate change.

ARIES is an international collaboration that has built, for the first time, a shared knowledge space to help address the most complex sustainability issues of our time, using the semantic web paradigm. From our central hub at the Basque Center for Climate Change we are supporting nearly 6,000 active users in 5 continents. ARIES applications range in scale from small-scale, high-resolution urban to regional and country-wide, supporting a number of government agencies, universities and NGOs on research and training to drastically change the effectiveness, speed and reliability of environmental assessments.
