  • energy efficiency
  • renewable sources
  • nuclear
  • environment and climate
  • health and safety
  • new technologies
  • electric system research.

On these issues the Agency ENEA:

  • performs basic research, mission-oriented and industrial skills usinga broad spectrum of experimental facilities, specialized laboratories, advanced instrumentation;
  • develops new technologies andadvanced applications;
  • disseminates and transfers the results encouraging their use for productive purposes;
  • provides services to public and private high-tech studies, measurements, tests and evaluations;
  • conducts training and information stretched to increase skills and knowledge of the public sector.


The Institute for the Protection and Environmental Research was established by Law 133/2008, conversion with amendments of Decree-Law 25 June 2008, n. 112. It performs the functions of the Agency for Environmental Protection and Technical Services, National Institute for Wildlife Research and the Central Institute for Applied Marine Science and Technology.

The Council for Research and Experimentation in Agriculture is a national institution for research and experimentation with general scientific competence in agriculture, agro-industry, fisheries and forestry. The CRA has legal personality under public law, under the supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and has scientific autonomy, statutory, organizational, administrative and financial. Established by Legislative Decree 454/99, the CRA collects the experiences of 28 research facilities and agricultural experimentation and their 54 branches operating devices. Currently, the CRA is comprised of four departments to which it relates 15 research centers (including an interdepartmental one) and 32 research units. The distribution throughout the country allows the CRA to disseminate widely its expertise, working synergistically with the Central Government, Local Authorities, Companies and Associations. In light of the recent reorganization, the regions in particular as organs of connection between territory and agriculture, have taken a leading role in defining the guidelines of the search for CRA. The aggregation into a single institution can meet the dual objective of consolidating the experience of historical research institutes and adjust to the growing needs of industry innovation and technological evolution. These prospects raise the CRA with a view to renewed competitiveness of agricultural research on European and international level and a new operation of the national socio-economic system.


Consorzio In.Bio:

The "Consortium for the creation of innovative Biotech incubators - In.Bio" has as main objective the promotion and launch of new innovative business initiatives in the field of Biotechnology. The purpose is to stimulate the growth of this sector with a high content of advanced technologies and strategic importance for the competitiveness of domestic industry. The Consortium In.Bio provides potential entrepreneurs: great infrastructure and qualified expertise, technical support activities and scientific, logistical, managerial and organizational. The Consortium consists of: ENEA, the Consortium for Applied Research in Biotechnology (CRAB), Eurogroup Consulting, Development Italy - Abruzzo, Confindustria Abruzzo. The services provided by the Consortium include: preparing techno-economic and financial feasibility studies; incubation; business development assistance to raise capital; temporary management.

Partners has joined the University of Palermo, which participates in the activities of the Project Life Man-Gmp-Ita with a self-financing. This External Unit is coordinated by Dr. Barbara Manachini, working in the Department of Environmental Biology and Biodiversity of University.


The Partnership is organized according to the following structure:

  • The Steering Committee has the role of body of policy, supervision and strategic control of the project. That body consists of a Person of each partner of Consortium.
  • The Project Coordinator is liable to the European Commission for the achieving of the project objectives. He participates at the Steering Committee from which receives guidelines and which shows the state of implementation of the project.
  • The Project Management Staff is the unit that supports the Project Coordinator in monitoring activities of the project.
  • The Monitoring and Control Staff consists of 2 teams that oversee scientific and economic aspects of the Project (Technical Scientific Staff and Technical Economic Staff). The team will be led by an expert with over 5 years of experience in the management and control of complex projects.
