CIRIAF (Inter-University Research Center on Pollution and Environment “Mauro Felli)” is a research center, based at the University of Perugia, which promotes interdisciplinary research activities in the fields of environmental pollution and its health and socio-economic effects, sustainable development, renewable and alternative energy, energy planning, sustainable mobility. 100 professors from 14 different Italian universities are involved in the activities of the centre.
The CIRIAF National Congress, at its sixteen edition in 2016, has become, over time, an important event for researchers and experts (engineers, physicists, chemists, architects, doctors, economists) coming not only from the academic world, but also from Ministries, Environmental Agencies and local Authorities. The annual meeting in Perugia is an opportunity to discuss the issues related to Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development.
The 16th Congress, which took place in Assisi (Perugia) in the days 7-9-April 2016, was quite successful. 93 papers were presented during the Congress, divided into the following Sessions in line with the congress tradition and in the meantime of great interest:
Sustainable and Green Buildings
Environmental and Socio-Economic Sustainability
Renewable and Alternative Energies and Plants
Climate change and impact on natural and agricultural ecosystems
Environmental Pollution and Human Health
A Special Session was also dedicated to Thermal Energy Storage, within the EU H2020 funded Project “INPATH-TES – PhD on Innovation Pathways for Thermal Energy Storage” with various international contributions.
As usual, the ceremony of the “Mauro Felli” award took place during the Congress. The award, established to honor the memory of the founder and first Director of CIRIAF, is intended for young graduates, Ph.D. students or researchers who have carried out research activities in the fields of pollution from physical agents, effects of environmental pollution on humans or related issues.
Thanks to the agreement with the international publishing house MDPI, I am happy to introduce you the Special issue of ENERGIES containing the best energy-related papers presented at the Congress. Another Special issue of SUSTAINABILITY (MDPI) will contain the best papers dealing with environmental and sustainable development issues.
The Special Issue will include the best papers presented at the Congress, selected by the Scientific Committee with the help of the various Chairmen of the Sessions.
Prof. Francesco Asdrubali
