Institutional Participants


The Department of Research National Council – Earth and Environment Department, the following Institutes will participate to the project:

CNR-IAMC: Institute for the Maritime-Coastal Environment logo_IAMC

The Institute gathers sections that traditionally work on themes regarding the maritime environment, and especially to its geological, chemical, physical and biological aspects. Training is associated to these researches, which have also applications in technological fields. Interest areas as per the institutional decree are: geology and maritime geophysics, morpho-barometer, stratigraphy and tectonic set-up of seabed, resources and risks, paleoclimate, biodiversity of maritime ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles, biological resources, operational oceanography, forecast of future conditions of the maritime ecosystem, ecology of coastal ecosystems.

The Institute undertakes basic and applied researches in the following fields: study of the interactions among vegetation and the environment, study of the effects of anthropic interventions on ecological balance, study of biological and evolution processes and mechanisms in plants in relation to the environment, eco-physiologic mechanisms and productivity of agrarian plants and forestry. The Institute’s activity deals with the interactions between plants and the environment in terms of individuals, population and vegetation, natural or cultivated communities. Basic scientific aspects have also to deal with experiments to contribute to solve all the environmental and productive problems, which can be present especially in the Mediterranean area.

The Institute’s primary purpose is to study and plan new solutions as far as research, technological transfer and high training in high performance processing systems (computerized and analysis grids, parallel and distributed calculation systems, advanced environment and technologies for Internet) and of intelligent and complex systems (management of data storage and flux, representation and discovery of knowledge, perception systems for robots, multi-agent systems, multimedia systems, scientific calculus) are concerned. The Institute’s scientific contribution is developed in crucial research areas for the development of economy and society.

CNR-IIA: Institute on Atmospheric pollution


The Institute carries out researches on environment pollution, and particularly with regards to atmospheric pollution. Research activities on new technologies to measure pollutants in the atmosphere but also indoor are promoted. The Institute manages European projects and participates to international programs (POLARNET, LARA).

CNR-IREA: Institute for Environment Electronic Measurement


The Institute’s mission is the development of methods and technologies for the acquisition, elaboration, fusion and interpretation of images and data gathered by electromagnetic sensors, which work via satellite, plane or on site, and are finalized to the monitoring of environment and land, non-invasive diagnostic and evaluation of electromagnetic risks. The Institute has solid competencies in microwave and optical measurement, on site diagnostics of environment and land, together with biological competencies for risk evaluation of exposure to electromagnetic fields, but also of their potential clinical application.

CNR-ISAC: Institute of Atmosphere and Climate Sciences droppedImage

International excellence in atmospheric parameters and air quality in remote regions, in conducting measurement campaigns, development of new technologies for data measurement and transmission, data analysis, numeric simulation of global climate and climate of mountain areas, downscaling techniques and analysis of impacts of climatic change in the mountains.

CNR-ISAFOM: Institute for Agricultural and Forestry Systems in the MediterraneandroppedImage

ISAFOM’s research activity is oriented to learn and broaden the study and analysis of physical, chemical and biological processes which determine the functioning and dynamics of agro- forestry ecosystems in order to develop technical solutions to improve productive processes, quality of products, environment protection to highlight the functionality of the woods.
