It provides tools and methods for the assessment of policies, plans and strategies to cope with risks adaptation and mitigation. Both natural and anthropogenic risks are addressed with specific focus on seismic and hydrogeological vulnerability, climate change and air quality

Divisione modelli e tecnologie per la riduzione degli impatti antropici e dei rischi naturali
The Laboratory performs research activity, innovation and technological transfer aimed to the application of innovative anti-seismic systems to protect industrial plants (chemical and nuclear) and strategical buildings (schools, hospitals), both new and existing, also belonging to the cultural heritage.
The primary mission of the Laboratory is to study and model the climate system for projecting the impacts of climate variability and future scenarios on society and natural resources at spatial scales most relevant to humans, ecosystems and the national productively system.
The numerical models developed and applied in the Laboratory are of different complexity and realism. They span from global Earth-System models to high resolution regional climate models mainly focused on the Euro-Mediterranean area, and from seasonal to multi-decadal time scales.
Research, innovation and technological transfer on air pollution modelling, chemical transformation of gases and aerosols in the lower atmosphere, measurement and chemical and physical characterization of atmospheric particulate matter. Development of models for simulating the concentration and deposition fields of air pollutants at different scales - from street canyons to the national and continental scales in order to evaluate their impact on human health, ecosystems and cultural heritage.
