DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The (Italian) National Research Council is the largest national scientific organisation, involving more than 8,000 people, the majority of which are scientists. the Groundwater Research Group consists of experts, civil and chemical engineers, geologists, and statisticians, which execute study and R&D activities, on-site surveys and laboratories measurements, numerical modelling, geostatistical analyses on groundwater. Topics include: groundwater discharge works; groundwater protection from quality and quantity degradation risks; groundwater resources management, considering climate change and saltwater intrusion, in the case of coastal aquifer; aquifer vulnerability, groundwater pollution and remediation; interaction between groundwater and underground or shallow engineering works, for any purpose, including tunnels and waste management, and effects on land stability.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
