13 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia We partitioned all external funding over the various activities of INGV. In particular funding from all projects active in 2010 was: Analyzing how 2010 funding is distributed Analyzing how 2010 funding is distributed considered for the full expected income regardless of whether the funding has effectively been allocated/made available at the expected time; considered for the full expected income regardless of whether the funding has effectively been allocated/made available at the expected time; normalized to 2010 (if the project has a longer duration); normalized to 2010 (if the project has a longer duration); spread over the relevant Obiettivi Specifici and summed up. spread over the relevant Obiettivi Specifici and summed up.

25 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia INGV The reorganization

26 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia A little history The law issued on 27 September 2007, n. 165, established that all public research institutions (Enti Pubblici di Ricerca, EPR) had to be reorganized in order to … promote, support and rationalize activities in the area of research funded by the public sector…

27 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia A little history On 31 December 2009 the Governement issued a decree that effectively started the process of riordino.

28 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia A little history The decree states that the riordino will be based on the work of a specifically created panel formed by - the present Consiglio Direttivo of INGV (four members plus INGV President) members plus INGV President) - two non-INGV representatives of the informed scientific community scientific community - three representatives appointed by the Ministry of Research (MIUR) Ministry of Research (MIUR)

29 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia A little history The law stated that the panel has 6 months (plus 15 days) from 1 Febrary 2010 to complete the task. Unfortunately the external members have been appointed only recently, which effectively reduces the time available to complete the work to less than 3 months….

30 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia A little history In order to comply with the 2007 law in September 2008 INGV appointed an internal committee formed by: Fabio Florindo, URSI Gianluca Valensise, URSI Antonio Meloni, director of Section Roma 2 Alessandro Bonaccorso, past-director of Section Catania Tullio Pepe, General Director The committee was in charge of preparing a proposal for updating the of INGV to comply with the above mentioned law.

31 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia A little history This task was completed on 17 October 2008, when INGV sent the Minister a document concerning its own view of the riordino

32 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia The document included one official INGV proposal plus five additional proposal presented by individual Section Directors or by URSI. Clearly the main changes concern the structure of INGV. In URSIs proposal this would now be composed of: Departments Departments Sections/Observatories Sections/Observatories Central Administration Central Administration Divisions Divisions

33 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Departments These are thematic structures at national scale, each one covering one of the macro- areas of INGV activity. For example (it is just an example!) Dept 1 - Seismology Dept 2 - Volcanology Dept 3 - Environment and climate Dept 4 - Natural hazards

34 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Sections These are geographic entities similar to todays section except that most of the planning is decided at the level of Departments. Normally most of a Section falls within one Department. However scientists residing in one Section may belong to up to two Sections. Hence scientist from different Departments may end up working next to each other in the same geographic Section.

35 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Observatories The Sections of Naples and Catania are given a special status and a special name: Osseravtorio Vesuviano, and Osservatorio Etneo. In case of volcanic crisis their special status allows decision to be made, and operations to be carried out, at the level of the Observatory (without having to wait for decision at Department level).

36 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Divisions The activity of Departments is based on the Divisions, which more or less coincide with todays TTCs. These are national structures that operate under the supervision of the head of the relevant Department (a Division reports to one Department only).

37 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Central Administration Similar to todays Administration. It takes care of all administrative tasks that cannot be accomplished by the Departments (or that are more effectively accomplished on a centralized basis) It includes structure like Centro Servizi for accomplishing service-related tasks at national level.

38 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Open questions 1)How many Departments are needed? 2)What will be the future role of Sections? Will they be purely geographic entities or will they have a role in the big planning? 3)What is the meaning of joining a Department for each individual scientist? 4)Will the new structure be more efficient that the current one?

39 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Why do we need a change 1)Current Sections are mixed geographic-thematic and hence inhomogeneous 2)Sections often compete with each other for funding and personnel 3)Decisions made by Section seldom are the best possible decisions for INGV 4)Some Sections operate as if they were a small INGV within themselves (e.g. the INGV web page) 5)Due to the above, some activities are simply duplicated or planned without taking into account the potential for cooperation and exchange of instrumentation and data

40 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia INGV 2009 scientific & editorial production

41 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia 2009 Publications (published and in press) Publications on peer-reviewed JCR Journals: Other publications (reports, bulletins, etc): _________________________________________________________________ Total : The number of JCR papers has increased by over 20 % from 2007 to 2008 and by over 39 % from 2008 to A small fraction of this increase has to do with a more efficient retrieval of publications, but most of it reflects a net increase in productivity.

42 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Where do INGV scientists publish more? There is a clear tendency for most INGV scientists to prefer high-IF journals. Good news in general, bad news for Annals of Geophysics perhaps.

43 Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia Productivity by INGV Structure
