The mission of the ISP is to contribute to increasing the quality of Italian scientific and technological research in the polar regions, and to provide knowledge on global changes in support of Italian and European environmental policies by the development of new technologies and survey methodologies.
The Institute aims to be a reference point for:
Fulfilling our mission will allow us to improve our understanding of the climatic changes taking place in the Arctic and Antarctic environments and possible future developments at both polar and global levels. Our studies address research issues related to both the chemical/geochemical and physical aspects of the poles using a multidisciplinary approach to protect these vulnerable extreme environments. The repercussions of climate change on these dynamics are still largely unknown and will require integrated research using long term multidisciplinary methods to understand them fully.
