Brochure CORILA

  • promotes and coordinates research on the Venice lagoon, also at an international level;
  • promotes dialogue with the national and international scientific community by making available the knowledge and operational assets of its members in an interdisciplinary framework for opportunities for discussion and common work;
  • 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 natural and anthropic system;
  • processes and manages this information in an integrated and updated framework, providing the essential elements and synthesis to allow political decision-makers and Public Administrations to make the best possible choices and strategies based on knowledge, providing tools for an agile but in-depth understanding of the lagoon system , its peculiarities and problems;
  • carries out interdisciplinary scientific research projects relevant to the problems of the Lagoon which, with the entry into operation of the MOSE, will be the first “regulated lagoon” in the world, strongly influenced by both climate change and numerous other human impacts;
  • organizes a wide diffusion of the research and its results, both thanks to the publication of the main research results, and through the organization of meetings and conferences, and through social media, to reach and interact with various types of possible users;
  • participates in international projects and other activities funded by the European Union, often offering Venice and its lagoon as a “study site”: Venice can be considered a large laboratory for conducting interdisciplinary research on climate change adaptation and mitigation.
