Marine weather station located in the Port of Ancona.

In cooperation with the Port System Authority of the Central Adriatic Sea, a remotely controllable automatic bulkhead management application has been implemented at the Ancona breakwater basin. This system allows automatic and remote monitoring of water levels and enables monitoring of weather and sea parameters of interest. It is possible to manage the levels and discharge the waters into the sea from the backwater tank when the pre-set conditions of maximum level reached and tide level lower than that of the gate occur. The water passes through filters to purify it of pollutants while it is monitored and checked for compliance with pollutant parameters within the specifications set by law and controlled by CNR IRBIM. To achieve this, devices such as control units and sensors that detect the condition and state of the bulkheads, pool levels and sea level, and motor switches that operate the controls according to the required conditions and the achievement of the desired levels have been integrated.

The research activities of the Institute are carried out in the context of research, development and innovation projects, both national and international, based on regional funding programs (POR FEAMPA - Regional Operational Program of the European Maritime Affairs Fisheries Fund and Aquaculture and POR FESR - Regional Operational Program of the European Regional Development Fund) or ministerial (PRIN - Projects of relevant national interest, PNRA - National Research Program in Antarctica, PO FEAMPA - National Operational Program European Maritime Affairs Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund) , programs for European Territorial Cooperation (Interreg), direct funding programs of the European Commission (Horizon2020 and Horizon Europe, Life, JPI - Joint Programming Initiatives, ERA-NET Cofund) and thematic collaboration initiatives managed by international organizations such as, for example , the FAO - GFCM (General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean). The Institute also develops funded projects in the context of collaborations with private companies in the sectors of the blue economy as well as technology transfer and research results. Research projects, mainly of a collaborative nature, are developed through a wide network of partners that include major Italian and foreign research institutions and universities.
