Institute for Research, Development and Experimentation on Environment and Territory
is an Association operating in the non-profit sector whose statutory aims are recognized by the Sicilian Region. I.R.S.S.A.T. was born at the end of 2001 with the intent of participating at the territorial "reconstruction" and re-qualification through the use of clean, alternative and renewable sustainable energies with full respect for the environment. I.R.S.S.A.T. does not only promotes its own projects (aiming to improve, by means of the ne west technologies, the environment and the quality of life), but it also acts to meet, stimulate and "help" those who are willing to undertake research, development and/or experimentation actions, having as main targets the support of new ideas and projects so that they may become enterprise. It carries out dissemination and promotion actions (conferences, publications, seminars, etc.) in order to spread the research methods and the study of the territory with any functional tool. I.R.S.S.A.T. interests concentrate in the applied research area related to the enlargement and the experimentation of new urban development models oriented towards the creation of energetic selfsufficiency systems which exclusively employ alternative and renewable sources, but also the setting up of projects aiming to create an efficient system of treatment of urban solid waste, in congruity with the urban context where it will be inserted. To reach its goals, I.R.S.S.A.T. takes part to the main research programmes made accessible by the European Union and by the National and Regional legislation to all participating subjects (7th FWP, PON, POR, etc.).
