Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change
The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) is a non-profit research institution established in 2005, with the financial support of the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. CMCC manages and promotes scientific and applied activities in the field of international climate change research.
CORILA is a non-profit association between the Ca‘ Foscari University of Venice, the IUAV University of Venice, the University of Padua, the National Research Council and the National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics. It is supervised by the Ministry of University and Research, whose Minister is part of the Venice Safeguard Committee, led by the Prime Minister and composed of Ministers and local authorities.
CORILA promotes and coordinates research on the Venice lagoon, also internationally; facilitates interaction with the scientific community; studies the physical system, the environmental, architectural and landscape, economic and social aspects of the lagoon and of the settlements, strongly interconnected components of a complex system; processes and manages this information in an integrated framework; carries out interdisciplinary scientific research projects relevant to the problems of the Lagoon and organizes a wide dissemination of research and its results. The operational structure is composed of researchers who carry out scientific coordination, interdisciplinary integration as well as administrative and management functions.
CORILA also participates in projects and activities financed by the European Union, often offering Venice and its lagoon as a “study site”, and is in close contact with several United Nations offices (UNESCO, UNDRR, UNEP, etc.).
