Third mission

The CNR IRISS carries out activities for knowledge enhancement and transfer to institutions, businesses, policy makers, associations, organisations and citizens in order to contribute to the environmental, social and economic development of the territory in a sustainable perspective, consistently with the SDGs 2030.

We are engaged in initiatives addressed to local communities and stakeholders, reached through public engagement methodologies and tools to activate co-creation processes able to generate positive impacts at the local level.

Thus research opens the door to the territory, civil society, businesses and local authorities.

In order to strengthen the effectiveness of its third mission initiatives, the Institute has joined the Campania Region Network Outreach of the National Research Council (CREO-CNR), consisting of 25 CNR Institutes located the Campania Region and the CNR Unique Guarantee Committee (CUG).

CREO-CNR aims at communicating and disseminating research, through shared, collective and multi/interdisciplinary participation in national and international events in the field, to increase public trust and understanding of research, its methods and results.
