Engineering, ICT and technologies for energy and transportation
The most important research themes concerning the Cnr Department of Engineering, Ict and technologies (Diitet) deal with production systems and constructions, Ict, energy and transport, aerospace and applied mathematics. In addition, a great attention is devoted to the development of advanced technologies in the fields of information technology and cybersecurity, and the realization of electronic/optoelectronic devices with different application: medical diagnosis, culturale heritage preservation, and monitoring of food quality, water, soil, forest, as well as infrastructures.
The research fields alsoi nclude nanotechnologies and advanced materials for the application in medicine and environmental issues; the development of advanced solutions for the improvement of production systems (“factories of the future”); intelligent and sustainable mobility, traceability of production and distribution network in different market sectors.
The research, coordinated by the University of Trento, has recreated for the first time the pathological condition in a test tube discovering what happens in the cell nucleus and what hinders the formation of cartilages and bones. The findings were published in the scientific journal Nature Genetics
Ariel, the Esa space mission that will study exoplanets atmospheres, enters the official development phase. The spacecraft is foreseen to launch 2029 and sees an important scientific and technological Italian contribution. The Cnr-Ifn of Padova participates in the development of the innovative telescope optics
The Visual Computing Lab of Cnr-Isti developed an interactive web system to explore the Loggia of Cupid and Psyche, frescoed by Raffaello Sanzio, and other paintings of Villa Farnesina (Rome). The system allows to immerse in the paintings, examining and discovering -both from an historical, artistic and scientific point of view- the 170 species of the vegetal festoons, and the 50 animal species represented in the vault
"ARETE" project: investigating the effect of Augmented Reality on behavioural management within primary schools
Researchers of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Istituto per le tecnologie didattiche (Cnr-Itd) of the National Research Council of Italy are currently studying how to introduce the Augmented Reality for supporting behavioural teaching and learning processes at school

Foresight is a interdepartmental project of the National Research Council of Italy, aimed at elaborating coherent research strategies and addressing socially relevant problems related to environment, health, food, enery, security and transportation
Riccardo Lanari received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society
Riccardo Lanari, acting director of the Institute for Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment (Cnr-Irea) of the Italian National Research Council - received the IEEE GRSS Fawwaz Ulaby Distinguished Achievement Award 2020
The Institute of Research on Combustion (Irc) carries out research in areas of strategic importance for the national level of innovation, with implications on several fields: energy, industry, safety, environment, new materials. Activities, carried out at both theoretical and experimental level, aim to the develop combustion processes with low environmental impact and to develop new technologies for thermo-valorization of wastes, biomass and alternative fuels
NAUTILOS project officially started on October 1st, 2020: funded under the "Future of Seas and Oceans Flagship Initiative" of Horizon 2020, it is coordinated by the National Research Council of Italy and brings together 21 partners from 11 European countries. The aim of the project is to obtain a collection of data at a much higher spatial resolution, temporal regularity and length than currently available at the European scale, and to further enable and democratise the monitoring of the marine environment
Cnr-Irea is a scientific and technological research institute affiliated to the Department of Engineering - ICT and Technology for Energy and Transport (DIITET). Irea has consolidated expertise in the fields of optical remote sensing. Optical Remote Sensing deals with those part of electromagnetic spectrum characterised by the wavelengths from the visible (0.4 micrometer) to the near infrared (NIR) up to thermal infrared (TIR, 15 micrometer), collecting radiation reflected and emitted from the observed surfaces
D4Science is an organisation offering a Data Infrastructure since 2009. D4Science is operated by a team of professionals and researchers having as main objective the maintenance, the updating, the operation and the support for users of the infrastructure itself
