GeoSciences a Research Infrastructure for the Italian Geological Surveys Network

The project aims to create a research infrastructure for the Italian Network of Geological Survey – RISG, the coordination network among ISPRA (Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research), the Geological Survey of Italy, and the Regional Geological Surveys. 
Politecnico di Torino will develop actions related to the realisation of information systems managing national geological resources. The main purpose is to overcome the current data and knowledge fragmentation regarding geo-resources, particularly regarding raw materials defined critical by the European Commision. The current need to reactivate mining research is a first step to decrease the excessive dependence on raw material imports from increasingly unstable international markets, to build solid domestic supply chains and guarantee a secure and sustainable supply to the Italian industry.
