Bilateral Project Italy - Morocco
Fault reactivation study of the long-lived major fault systems of the High Atlas belt (Morocco)
Partner Italy: Dr. Alessandro Ellero, CNR-IGG (alessandro.ellero(at)igg.cnr(dot)it)
Partner Morocco: Prof. Hassan Ouanaimi, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Université Cadi Ayyad, Marrakech
HIETE aims to develop an interdisciplinary experimental – modelling approach to quantify the ongoing consolidation / subsidence process in Holocene deposits in relation to current sedimentation and SLR rates in order to reconstruct the Holocene evolution of the salt marshes of the Venice lagoon and predict the feedback on their resilience in the near future.

BRIC-INAIL Asbestos Call
The project aims at the evaluation of the environmental hazard related to the presence of fibrous minerals (NOA, Naturally Occurring Asbestos) in natural settings. The project will focus on three fibrous minerals originated in different geological contexts: fibrous antigorite from the serpentinites of the Voltri Massif (Liguria); fibrous tremolite from the serpentinites of the Calabrian-Lucanian Apennines (Basilicata); fibrous fluoredenite from the Pleistocene volcanic rocks of Biancavilla (CT - Sicily), at the foothills of Mount Etna.

Bilateral project Italy - China
"Coastal system changes over the Anthropocene: Natural Vs Induced drivers in China and Italy" is a Bilateral project between National Council of Research of Italy and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), funded for 3 years (2020-2022).
Italian coordinator: Sandra Donnici, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto Geoscienze e Georisorse (CNR-IGG) (sandra.donnici(at)igg.cnr(dot)it)
Chinese coordinator: Cheng Tang, Chinese Academy of Sciences - Yantai Institute of Coastal Zone Research (CAS-YIC).
The project "TREZZE, TEGNUE AND MARINE ENVIRONMENTS OF NORTHERN ADRIATIC SEA: MANAGEMENT PROPOSALS (TRETAMARA)" aims to capitalize on previous knowledge, to enhance the best management practices, drawing up a document that supports the drafting of the management plans of the coastal and marine SCI areas, contributing to the harmonization of the plans of management at Northern Adriatic level. The project would like to propose national and transnational guidelines for an integrated management of the marine-coastal habitat and a high ecological value also through targeted actions with highly innovative content.

H2020 Project GECO (Geothermal Emission Gas Control)
GECO (Geothermal Emission Gas Control) is a European project co-funded for four years (01/10/2018 - 30/09/2022) by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, the Framework Program for Research and Technological Development 2014 - 2020.
The project aims to study and develop, at industrial level, the production of geothermal energy with zero emissions. Geothermal fluids can naturally contain small variable amounts of CO2 and H2S that, if released into the atmosphere, can contribute negatively to the climate change.
Scientific coordinator IGG-CNR: Chiara Boschi (chiara.boschi(at)igg.cnr(dot)it).
VENEZIA 2021 project
This research aims at quantifying the present land subsidence in the Venice Lagoon, detecting the natural and anthropogenic factors responsible for the observed movements, and predicting their possible evolution.

IGCP 663 - IM2LSC project
The International Geoscience Programme approved the project IGCP 663 “Impact, Mechanism, Monitoring of Land Subsidence in Coastal cities (IM2LSC)” aiming to bring together worldwide researchers to share expertise on subsidence processes typically occurring in coastal areas and cities. IGCP 663 plans to research the impacts of human activities and sea-level rise, hydro-mechanism and monitoring methods of land subsidence in coastlands with special focus on coastal cities of the less developed countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The general objective of the OT4CLIMA project is to develop advanced Earth Observation (EO) technologies and methodologies for improving our knowledge of the effects of Climate Change (CC) and our capability to mitigate them at the regional and sub-regional scale.
Geochemical tracers and indicators for the evaluation of geothermal resources is a Joint Research Project between National Council of Research of Italy and Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan, funded for 2 years.
The Geothermal Atlas of southern Italy is a project aimed at characterizing, assessing and mapping of conventional and unconventional geothermal resources for power production in southern Italy.
VIGOR was a four year Project launched at the end of 2010, coordinated at national level by CNR-IGG and dedicated to a comprehensive assessment of geothermal energy and its technological applications in four regions of southern Italy (Calabria, Campania, Apulia and Sicily, the “Regioni Convergenza”).
The Sa.Pe.Vo. project is a product of the Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources of CNR. The project team includes Unifi, Unipa, UNIRM1 and Universidad de El Salvador. The Italian Agency for International Cooperation has financed the project.
