The Technical-Scientific Activities Office for the forecast and prevention of risks:

a) Coordinates the action of the Department to promote activities of a technical-scientific nature aimed at the prediction, prevention and mitigation of different types of risks and the definition of the relevant scenarios;

b) manages the interactions with the scientific community and with research Institutes and Bodies;

c) ensures the unitary direction of the activities of the Centers of Competence in relation to the areas of competence of the Department and the monitoring of the state of implementation and the technical and scientific evaluation of the related agreements and conventions;

d) coordinates the participation of the Department in the national warning systems and the integration of instrumental monitoring networks of the territory and takes care of the supervision of the Central Functional Center;

e) supports the activity of the National Commission for forecasting and prevention of major risks and collaborates with the Agency "ltaliaMeteo";

f) oversees the participation of the Department in the process of formation of technical legislation in the various sectors of risk;

g) coordinates the technical and scientific activities for multi-risk assessments.
