The CNR IGAG local office at Cagliari has been part of the Institute since its foundation in 2001. 

Formerly Centro di Studi Geominerari e Mineralurgici, it was the first CNR center in Sardinia, hosted since the ’70s at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Cagliari, where it still has its headquarters, and it mainly dealt with research topics related to prospecting, evaluation, production and exploitation of mineral resources, energy and subsoil fluids and related environmental issues.

Since the time of the Centro Studi, it collaborates continuously and effectively with the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering (DICAAR) also supporting university teaching and higher education. It has a close connection with public and private operators in the territory in which it operates.

The CNR IGAG of Cagliari is equipped with several laboratories of analysis and methodological-technological platforms and shared laboratories at the DICAAR of the University of Cagliari, used to support several fundamental and applied researches, and for the third-mission activities, in the field of Geosciences and Cultural Heritage.
