  • Framework Agreement between the University of Bologna and TEL SAS for research and development activities as part of the construction work of the Moncevisio base tunnel (since December 2017).
  • Research Contract Commissioned by Collins S.r.l. for research activities on the topic: “Modelling of the effects induced on structures by the excavation of tunnels with explosives”, euro 30,000 (April 2017).
  • Agreement with Edison Stoccaggio S.p.A. "Study on the design of a micro-seismic network at the San Potito-Cotignola storage field, under concession of Edison Stoccaggio S.p.A." "Period: May 2017-May 2018. On this topic, the signing of a new agreement for an interpretative insight of seismological and geodetic monitoring data in areas of natural gas storage fields under concession of Edison Stoccaggio S.p.A is under discussion.
  • Agreement with the Ministry of Economic Development, DGS-UNMIG.This agreement concerns studies in the fields of controls, safety and improvement of the scientific knowledge for the monitoring of offshore operations. Main areas of activity: 1- Study of the environmental effects and the dynamics of dispersion and degradation of oily pollutants in the sea. 2- Study of data processing methods and advanced control instrumentation for monitoring and measuring the phenomena of soil deformations resulting from anthropic activities connected with the production of subsoil fluids. 3- Study, verification and monitoring of the activities of offshore drilling rigs operating in Italy, in order to manage the safety of operations. 4- Development of an organic system of performance indicators (Key Performance Indicators, KPIs) for the evaluation and monitoring of the safety and sustainability of the activities in the Italian offshore Oil & Gas sector. Period: first convention, 2016-2017; second convention, 2018-2019.
