Research Focus of the Institute:

The main scientific and technological challenges that the World will have to face during the XXI Century in order to respond to complex problems that occur on a global scale are widely recognised. The ICARE Institute's choice of relevant research objectives responds to the following important environmental and socio-economical issues: - the growing World population and related wealth disparity;
- the increasing size and density of the World’s large cities;
- climate changes and consequent increase of natural risks;
- the depletion of natural resources and environmental damages;
- the need for a sustainable and renewable energy supply;
- the emergence of new markets in the developing countries.

Priority axes The focus of ICARE research activities is placed on interdisciplinary research projects with a strong international impact in the corresponding domains of science and technology, such as: - Infrastructures (large sites) - Risk management
- Energy (solar, systems) - Natural resources
- Underground structures - Geomaterials
- Environmental impact studies - Multiphase mediums
