To Protect Man and the Environment, through the development of knowledge through scientific research and the innovation capacity of our human resources.
"Observe to predict, predict to prevent." This statement by Galileo Galilei has been the key concept of the activities developed by CIMA Research Foundation. The observation of the Earth is necessary for the monitoring of physical processes and for predicting the scenarios generated by them. Predict to prevent means to use science in the service of Man: for us, that means to translate scientific research into useful tools for the protection of citizen's lives and of the environment.
To become an international reference within our research fields, translating science and knowledge into real answers concerning mankind and the environmental global challenges. CIMA Research Foundation aims to pursue this vision in line with its fundamental values: curiosity, passion, collective responsibility and transparency.
