Curiosity, intuition, passion, creativity, tenaciousness: these are just some of the aspects that describe those fellows who have decided to rely on development and knowledge, making science their job.
Thanks to its network spread all over the Italian country and to the great variety of research topics, the Cnr plays a key role facing the challenges that are at the hearth of the international agenda of the research: healthcare, demographic changes and wellness, food safety and sustainable agriculture, energy and environmental protection, accessibility of resources, intelligent transport. This section offers a showcase of their work.

Cnr launched two Joint Lab Projects to be jointly set up with foreign countries’ research Institutions. The selected research areas are physical sciences and technologies of matter (three year period 2019-2021), deadline for applications is December 18, 2018
Understanding which is the response of the oceans to climate change and how climate change will influence fisheries and food supply from marine resources, is the aim of a recent study of the Institute of Information Science and Technology 'A. Faedo' (Cnr-Isti) in collaboration with Fao, published on the 'International Journal of Digital Earth'
In a joint interview with Science Business, the six research chiefs – of Max Planck, CNRS, Germany’s Leibniz Association and Helmholtz Association, Italy’s National Research Council (Cnr) and Spain’s Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) – said they are forming a “strong, informal group” to argue the political case for science in Europe, and develop new research projects together. In total, the six organisations employ more than 50,000 scientists and deliver a large share of the world’s top-cited research
The Beauty of Knowledge is an exhibition promoted and financed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (Maeci) Band carried out by the Italian National Research Council (Cnr) with the contribution of the four main Italian science museums: Fondazione Idis-Città della scienza (Naples); Museo Galileo (Florence); Museo delle scienza (Trento); Museo nazionale della scienza e della tecnologia 'Leonardo da Vinci' (Milan)
The KDDLab (Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Laboratory) of Cnr-Isti applies its expertise in Big Mobility Data Analysis. Track&Know is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
Previous studies have shown that seabirds are able to navigate with accuracy over large expanses of visually featureless ocean but the mechanism behind olfactory avian navigation has until now remained elusive. Using a large number of flight patterns of three species of shearwater an interdisciplinary international team led by the Cnr-Isc showed that atmospheric turbulence is not merely a nuisance as previously believed but plays a fundamental role in generating the observed flight patterns of seabirds
Cnr is paying a lot of attention to the potential objectives and structure of the next Framework Programme. To this end, a new position paper was released, introducing the Cnr priorities in terms of 'Mission' as seems to be devised by the EC within Horizon Europe
The aim of the Winter college is to offer Ph.D. students and other emerging researchers broad training in the innovative applications of optics and photonics in food and agriculture
On September 1st the H2020 European project Prochip led by the Institute for photonics and nanotechnologies (Cnr-Ifn) had started. The goal of the project is to realize by femtosecond laser writing a high-throughput super-resolution microscope in a microfluidic chip smaller than a coin
On the Cnr webtv platform the portraits of some Cnr researchers in their daily routine, both at work and in their private life
The on line application system for the recruitment of staff and other types of employement and training of the National Research Council of Italy
The Cnr S&T Digital Library makes available research products, datasets, data and information on research activities, projects, R&D actors, their expertise and skills, as well as digitised cultural and historical heritage contents
Cnr produces several journals and newsletters to which you can subscribe, usually for free, directly from the websites of the institutes that produce them.
This page, created with the aim of making such contributions quickly reachable and accessible to citizens and researchers, contains some of the journals and newsletters sent and transmitted from the network Cnr (departments, institutes, etc) that provide news and updates on topics of their interest
Cnr finances joint labs projects based on proposals made by Italian and Foreign researchers together, aimed at sharing research facilites, skills and expertise
The Italian National Research Council is giving its contribution to the ongoing debate on the European Innovation Council, (Eic), the body for innovation proposed by the European Commission to boost the research and innovation system at a European level
The Short-Term Mobility Program was first implemented by Cnr in 1995 to allow short-term funding for young Italian researchers who could and/or wanted access to prestigious international scientific institutions and, at the same time, host eminent foreign scholars in Italy. Over the years, the Scheme has proved to be a very useful tool for many young researchers, and to date Cnr stands out to be the only European Research Institution that annually finances this highly valued international initiative
The 2018 Short Term Mobility Programme, aimed at fostering international research cooperation among Cnr and international research institution, is now available. Deadline for participation is July 31, 2018
