Our ambition is to implement a smart green vision.
In environment, LIST develops strategies, technologies and tools to better monitor, assess, use and safeguard natural and renewable resources.
The “Environmental Research and Innovation” (ERIN) department of LIST brings together with its teams made of 170 life, environmental, and IT scientists and engineers, the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control, etc.
ERIN’s ambition is to implement a smart green vision, striving for scientific excellence in the understanding of complex environmental and biological systems and their interaction with the technosphere, in order to accelerate innovation towards the sustainable management of natural resources and the transition towards a circular economy.
The portfolio of ERIN’s RDI activities ranges from laboratory and field experiments, environmental model and software development, process control and automation to environmental technologies. The understanding, analysis and evaluation of complex natural and anthropic systems are fostered with advanced tools for big data analytics, visualization and management.
ERIN’s RDI activities embrace four thematic domains:
Furthermore, specific needs and innovation challenges of public authorities and companies, in particular SMEs at national level, are addressed through our Environmental Resource Centre by offering science-based policy and technology support for:
ERIN also advises governments on determining sustainable policies for the future and provides innovative and high-quality environmental solutions at national and international levels, whereby small and large companies can gain a competitive advantage and create "green" jobs.
