REDI (REducing risks of natural DIsasters)

logo redi
REDI è un centro di ricerca, innovazione e formazione. La sua missione è di contribuire allo sviluppo di ricerche interdisciplinari per migliorare la preparazione e la risposta ai disastri da parte delle comunità, diminuendone il tempo di recupero e ripresa. L'approccio adottato è quello del knowledge-for-action, che implica un incessante impegno a mettere in atto il circolo virtuoso tra conoscenza e innovazione per poter agire efficacemente e senza ostacoli, in modo che l'avanzamento della scienza e il progresso tecnologico possano interagire positivamente per massimizzare i loro rispettivi impatti, anche a livello sociale.

REDI è costituito da una partnership aperta di istituti di ricerca italiani ed europei e università che svolgono ricerche approfondite sul campo del “natural risks reduction”, con l'obiettivo di avviare un hub internazionale dove vengano sviluppate metodologie innovative per: i) la co-progettazione, in collaborazione con i cittadini, le comunità, i governi ai diversi livelli e tutte le parti interessate; ii) l'implementazione di soluzioni ecologicamente sostenibili e integrate in solide politiche di sviluppo, per la mitigazione delle conseguenze e/o la riduzione dei rischi dei disastri.

REDI è stato fondato da 4 istituti di ricerca italiani: INGV, INFN, GSSI e UNICAM.

Il Consiglio Direttivo, presieduto dal Rettore dell’Università degli Studi di Camerino, prof. Claudio Pettinari, è composto da: prof. Eugenio Coccia, prof. Carlo Doglioni, prof. Fernando Ferroni e prof. Massimo Sargolini.

La Commissione Scientifica, coordinata dal prof. Massimo Sargolini, è composta da:

INFN-ENERGY strategic project

The aim of the INFN-ENERGY research project is to develop skills and instruments in the use of nuclear physics in the energy sector. The issues addressed under this strategic project include: decommissioning and waste treatment, control of radioactive materials, research and development of new nuclear fission technology, environmental monitoring and training. In this area of research, collaborations are essential, both with industries in the sector (in particular, Ansaldo Nucleare and SOGIN) and with other national and international organisations involved in specific activities in the sector (e.g. ENEA, CNR, polytechnics, Euratom). The INFN-ENERGY project consists of five specific lines of research: • TECHNOLOGICAL TRANSFER • ADS, FAST REACTORS, BURNING AND TRANSMUTATION OF WASTE • TECHNIQUES FOR THE PRODUCTION AND MONITORING OF FAST NEUTRONS • REACTOR PHYSICS • NUCLEAR FUSION

Regional and local projects

The INFN submits proposals and receives funding for regional and local research projects through its divisions and national laboratories. The following projects are currently underway:

• TURIN division - project: Neu_ART

• PISA division - project: Seismic Isolators for Advanced Virgo (ISAV)

• GENOA division - project: Magnetic Iron Detector2

• FLORENCE division – project: TemArt – Advanced techniques for material knowledge and preservation of historical and artistic heritage

• Gran Sasso National Laboratory–Special Project “Gran Sasso In Rete”

• Gran Sasso National Laboratory- Special Project “La società della conoscenza in Abruzzo”

• Southern National Laboratory – Biomedical applications of proton beams

This is not a complete list of the projects in question. For further details, reference should be made to this section of the 2012-2015 three-year plan.

Competitive projects

In accordance with art. 4, section 2 of Italian Legislative Decree No. 213/2009 on the reorganisation of government bodies, not less than 7% of the ordinary fund for research agencies will be set aside to “finance specific programmes and projects, including joint ventures, proposed by government bodies”.
