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.
