Short bio

The Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research has been established by Decree 112 of 25/6/2008, converted into Law 133 on 21/8/2008. ISPRA acts under the vigilance and policy guidance of the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea. ISPRA is in charge of a new networking system called SNPA (National System for Environmental Protection), covering all the environmental issues and giving technical scientific support to national/regional/local authorities. In 2008 the Regional Activity Centre for Information and Communication (INFO-RAC) was entrusted to ISPRA with the aim to set up a common information management infrastructure to facilitate and support information and communication activities in the MAPs.
