Individual Change of HAbits Needed for Green European transition

Acting in the present to improve the future.

The mission of the CNR-IIA is part of a highly topical framework for the ecosystemic balance of the planet.

The issue of air quality and air pollution affects the world population as a whole and inevitably is the result of our habits and consumption, economic and productive activities and, last but not least, the policies of national and international decision makers.

The impact of air pollution has repercussions in everyday life and in the future will result in economic and health costs negatively effecting quality of life.

The COHECO project on monitoring, warning and prevention of the conservation status of habitats and ecosystems in inland and coastal areas ends

The COHECO project led by the Puglia Region proposed the development of an innovative multi-platform environmental monitoring system based on the automatic integration and analysis of multi-scale, multi-temporal and multi-spectral data from satellite, aircraft and unguided vehicles. for men with data from ground sensors such as laser scanners and GPS.

Lockdown 2020 and air pollution in the Rome area

Lockdown 2020 and air pollution in the Rome area

A study by the Sapienza University and the CNR-IIA, in collaboration with the University of Molise and ARPA Lazio, analyzes the relationship between the first lockdown of 2020 and the decrease in air pollution from suspended dust.

Funded the DT4GS project to support intelligent green shipping

Funded the DT4GS project to support intelligent green shipping

The DT4GS (Digital Twin for Green Shipping) project of which the CNR-IIA is a partner was funded under the call HORIZON-CL5-2021-D5-01 and will provide an "Open Digital Twin Framework" for both shipping companies and for the broadest players in the nautical industry to exploit the new opportunities made available through the use of Digital Twins.

Technology transfer

Parallel to the research activities, the CNR-IIA is active on the front of technology transfer aimed at the various companies in the industrial and environmental services sectors.

Scientific disclosure

Scientific activity is developed through dissemination activities and projects to give the opportunity to a wide audience to learn about the topic of air pollution and access academic theory and research in an accessible and easy-to-understand form.
