Research team

Integrated expertise and shared objectives

Energy and environment experts, sustainable mobility specialists, professionals of the construction sector.

The project Ravenna Green Port develops along two different complementary trajectories of research and technology transfer:

Line 1 | Energy from Renewable Sources and Sustainable Mobility coordinated by CNR ITAE

Line 2 | Energy efficient buildings, infrastructure and processes by CertiMaC

The research activities see the supervision and coordination of senior researchers and involve a team of young researchers with transversal and diversified skills.

The networking and dissemination activities in the area are designed and managed by Innovation and Communication specialists.

A passionate and motivated team to develop the energy of the territory.
