Research institute for geo-hydrological protection (IRPI)


We have multiple outreach / educational activities. We contributed to the national strategy for adaptation to climate change (SNAC) and we participate to the "Commissione Grandi Rischi" that advises the National Department for Civil Protection (DPC). We teach university courses and we contribute to PhD programmes.

We collaborate to undergraduate and post-graduate education on natural, environmental and human-made hazards and risks, their prediction and mitigation, on soil conservation and land use planning, and on civil protection.

We carry out dissemination activities working with schools, and informing the general public on the risks posed by landslides and floods to the population of Italy []. We participates in the campaign "Io non rischio" promoted by the Italian National Department of Civil Protection.
