The Rome Secondary Office largely derives from the historical legacy of the original “Study Center for Quaternary and Environmental Evolution” of the CNR, which merged into IGAG at the time of its foundation. It is currently distributed in three distinct departments of the Sapienza University of Rome represented by the Department of Earth Sciences, which houses the largest part, the Department of Structural and Geotechnical Engineering and the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering.
Here, basic and applied research is developed in a wide range of topics strictly connected with the scientific activities carried out in the university departments, thanks also to the availability of various shared laboratories, cutting-edge methodological-technological platforms and the fruitful osmosis between higher education and research.
