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.
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
On 21 August 2017, a shallow earthquake of Md d 4.0 struck the Casamicciola Terme village in the north of Ischia volcanic island (Italy).

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
