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.

Funded the TERRE project which proposes innovative strategies to control and reduce environmental impacts in agricultural systems
The TERRE project involves various institutes of the CNR (CNR-IIA, CNR-IBE, CNR-IPCB, CNR-IRSA) and the University of Tuscia and aims to improve the technological infrastructure of agricultural practices, combining the development of new agricultural products acting as biostimulants of plant growth, with that of new sensors.
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.
The project for the monitoring of the habitats of the coastal dunes and of the lake of Lesina-Foce del Fortore in Puglia starts
The POR Habitat 2250 project aims at the habitat monitoring action * 2250 "Coastal dunes with Juniperus spp.", An integral part of the activities foreseen within the project "Natura 2000 Network: habitat monitoring actions (* 2250, * 9210 , * 1120, * 8330, * 1170) and species (Stipa austroitalica, Charadrius alexandrinus, Larus audouinii) of the Puglia Region.
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.
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.
The collaboration between CNR-IIA and the Pollution company was financed in the ROMEO project (Creation of an Online System for Odor Emission Monitoring), as part of the “Ingenuity” program of the Calabria Region.
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 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.
