CNR is a governmental research performing organization whose mission is to carry out, promote, spread, transfer and improve research activities in the main sectors of knowledge growth and of its applications for the scientific, technological, economic and social development. CNR is involved in JERICO-NEXT with expertise of the Institute of Marine Sciences, ISMAR, one of the 12 institutes affiliated to the Department of Earth System Science and Environmental Technologies of CNR (DTA). It is composed of seven Research Units and a head office located in Venice. Through its units, it directly manages the presently settled in situ coastal observing systems of CNR, composed by fixed platforms and moorings, HF radars, a glider and an observational system based on fishing vessels. The groups mailny involved in this project are based in Trieste, La Spezia and Ancona and are active in physical and chemical oceanography and fishery research, concerning both technological development and environmental aspects.
