CORDA participates in the Horizon 2020-funded Marie Curie Integrated Training Network NEUROSOME (Exploring the Neurological Exposome), which is led by Prof. Sarigiannis with the participation of 15 renown institutions from Europe and the USA focusing on the assessment of neurological impacts of multiple environmental hazards with a particular emphasis on early life (neurodevelopmental) impacts. CORDA is also participating in the H2020 HBM4EU Project, a flagship initiative of the European Commission having as main objective the establishment and implementation of an ambitious European Joint Programme (EJP) to provide policy makers with comparable and validated chemical exposure and health data at EU level.
CORDA is also involved in the following research projects:
PASCAL aiming at a better understanding of economic impacts of flood risk aiming at developing and employing up-to-date assessment tools for estimating material damage caused by flood risk under current and future climate.
DG ECHO project GReen INfrastructures for disaster risk reduction protection (GREEN) aiming at providing the necessary innovation in methods, tools, and solutions to appropriately promote the role of Green Infrastructure for Disaster Reduction Risk (DDR), climate change adaptation (CCA) and sustainable. In doing so, GREEN responds to the challenge transversally giving a proper value to ecosystem services will drive towards smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
We have worked with University of Pavia and IAEA to set up an international Master program on non-power applications of nuclear technology addressing both the technological outcomes of nuclear science and technology and the respective safety and multi-hazard risks. This will be a MSc program co-directed by IUSS and IAEA linking industry and the international academic community in non-power use of nuclear technology.
