The Institute of Polar Sciences (ISP) of the National Research Council was born on June 1st, 2019 with act n.81 on 31/05/2019 of President Inguscio. The idea of a Polar Institute has its roots in research activities, which have expanded over time, starting from the first years of Antarctic research in 1985. The construction of the Italian base in Antarctica (MZS station) before and the base in the Arctic (DI station) afterwards, has allowed the development of two generations of polar researchers who have made these remote environments their natural laboratory and their home away from home.
