Major projects: 

Participation to the following national and international projects:

  • Faglie attive del Friuli Venezia Giulia (Active faults of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region)
    The aim is the compilation of a geodatabase including all the known tectonic structures of the region, with focus on the active ones. Collaborative project between University of Udine, University of Trieste and OGS. Funded by the Geological Service of the Department of environment and energy of the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
  • WestMedFlux - Thermal Signature of the OCT in the Western Mediterranean, and the role of Fluids and salt Diapirs The aim is the investigation on the nature and extension of the continental and oceanic crusts of the Sardo-Provençal and Algero-Balearic back-arc basins. Project led by UPMC (Sorbonne University, Paris and IFREMER France. https://www.westmedflux.fr/
