PROJECT DESCRIPTION The ability to manage risk in coastal areas and the need to increase resilience to erosion and coastal flooding require a holistic, participatory and interdisciplinary approach. The solutions developed by specialists have to be contextualized in the local communities, considering the economic, social and cultural conditions, and take into account the average rise of the sea and the effects of climate change. In this perspective the THESEUS project aimed at making...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION The LIFE GESTIRE project was conceived to face the need of an integrated strategy for the management of the Natura 2000 network in Lombardy, contributing – in line with the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 – to the restoration and maintenance of a sufficient conservation status of the sites, habitats and species in a region like Lombardy, characterized by strong pressures related to human settlements and production, and at the same time by a high richness of natural...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION The problem of deterioration of heritage materials has become increasingly urgent due to: the increase of weathering caused by climate change and atmospheric pollution (as studied in several European Projects  as for VIDRIO, Teach and NOAH’S ARK); the current use of inappropriate commercial products and their fast deterioration; the need of a more sustainable management of the built heritage. Therefore, there is the demand to improve the current...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION CLIM-RUN Project (2011 – 2014) is aimed mainly at the developing of a communication protocol by which climate information has been transferred from the researchers to the stakeholders in order to develop suitable climate informed decisions. CLIM-RUN Project developed a protocol for applying new methodologies and improved modeling and downscaling tools for the provision of adequate climate information at regional and local scale that is relevant to and usable by...
