Our mission is to design and execute scientific research and technological development in the fields of natural hazards with emphasis on geo-hydrological hazards, environmental protection, and the sustainable use of geo-resources. We carry out our mission by operating at different geographical and temporal scales, and in different climatic, physiographic and geological zones.
Our main goals include:
[+] to produce new knowledge on potentially hazardous natural phenomena, chiefly geo-hydrological hazards, and their interactions with the natural and human environments,
[+] to develop technologies, innovative services & products useful to the definition, prediction and mitigation of geo-hydrological risks, to land planning and to the sustainable and effective management of geo-environmental resources.
[+] to conduct research and technological development (R&D) activities in the vast field of natural hazards and the protection of land and environmental.
[+] to perform scientific and technological consulting for public authorities and private business. IRPI performs outreach activates, including training and dissemination, on geo-hydrological hazards and their consequences.
