GRASPA Group

The Italian environmetricians group named GRASPA (Research Group for Statistical Applications to Environmental Problems), active since 1995, has become since May 2013 a “permanent working group” of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS). GRASPA-SIS promotes statistical and interdisciplinary research in the field of environmental quality, safety and sustainability including air and water quality, epidemiology, earth science and ecology. The group fosters methodological developments and applications in fields such as spatial and spatio-temporal modelling, functional data analysis, spatial and spatio-temporal sampling and extreme values. Moreover it endorses co-operation and interchange of views among statisticians, academics from environmental sciences as well as practitioners from government and independent environmental agencies.
GRASPA-SIS intends to promote participation to international projects, workshops and conferences, by collaborating with other scientific societies and first of all with TIES.
