The Milan Headquarter merges into IGAG in 2019, formerly the headquarter of the Institute for the Dynamics of Environmental Processes. It is located in four workplaces in two CNR Research Areas of Milan, the Department of Earth Sciences of the State University of Milan and the Department of Environmental and Earth Sciences of the University of Milan Bicocca with whose it collaborates in a stable and synergistic way from several decades, also supporting teaching and higher formation. It has a close connection with the public and private actuators that insist on the territory where it operates.

It is equipped with eight methodological-technological platforms and laboratories located at the CNR offices and also shared with the Universities, which are able to support a wide spectrum of basic research and advanced applied researches and the third mission activity in geosciences.
