The Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources, founded in January 2002 from the union of two former CNR Institutes in Pisa and six Research Centres (at the Universities of Florence, Padua, Pavia, Pisa, Rome, and Turin) is involved in both basic and applied researches. The Institute is associated to the Department  of  Earth and Environment
The Institute is located in the CNR Pisa Reasearch Area (Direction, Administration and main laboratories and facilities). Other important IGG laboratories are located at the University Departments of Earth Sciences of Florence, Padua, Pavia, Pisa, Rome, and Turin. 
The scientific, technical and administrative staff of IGG consists of  94 people. The scientific staff is also formed by 14-22 PhD students, post-graduate students, collaborators, etc. The university professors associated to the research projects of IGG are 60.

The IGG conducts studies based on mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, geodynamics and geophysics, aimed at understanding the processes occurring both in the interior and at the surface of the Earth, and providing the fundamental knowledge for the applications (technological use of geomaterials, mitigation of the natural risks and correct management of the Earth resources for a sustainable development). The capability of characterizing geomaterials, their alteration and the technological process is also applied to cultural heritage and archaeology. Researches in the fields of geothermal energy, green-house gas sequestration, hydrogeology, environmental geochemistry and geological hazards, are currently carried out by IGG, and are supported by EU, Government, industries and local communities funds.

Si segnala un evento organizzato nell'ambito delle celebrazioni dell'Anno Internazionale della Cristallografia (IYCr2014) con la collaborazione attiva di personale IGG

IYCr-2014: Challenges in Crystallography, Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, 13-14 ottobre 2014

L'Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, col supporto di AIC, FEBS, INRIM, SIMP e STSN, organizza un Convegno internazionale in cui verranno illustrate e discusse le possibilità offerte dalle nuove frontiere della cristallografia (in particolare le nuove sorgenti di radiazione per la diffrazione, le metodologie di raccolta di dati di diffrazione da nanocristalli, gli studi sperimentali e computazionali del comportamento delle fasi cristalline in condizioni estreme), ed alcune delle eccitanti prospettive di sviluppo che l'approccio cristallografico può portare nei più diversi settori di ricerca, dalla biologia molecolare, alle scienze della Terra, alle scienze dei materiali.

Hanno confermato la loro presenza: Immanuel Bloch (Max Planck Institut für Quantenoptik), Henry N. Chapman (Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, DESY), Emil Makovicky (Københavns Universitet), Enrico Mugnaioli (Mainz Universität), Fabrizio Nestola (Università di Padova), Artem Oganov (Stony Brook University), Joao Rocha (Universidade de Aveiro), Maria Selmer (Uppsala Universitet), Ilme Schlichting (Max Planck Institut für Medizinische Forschung).
