OGS is an internationally oriented public research institution. This institution operates and develops its own mission in the European Research Area (ERA) and internationally, prioritizing the basic and applied research fields of:

• Oceanography (under the Physical, Chemical and Biological aspects);

• Geophysics and Marine Geology;

• Experimental and Explorative Geophysics.

OGS applies its own expertise in Earth Sciences, and in Marine and Polar regions to contribute not only to the spreading and widening of the knowledge, but also to the practical solution of environmental, economic and social issues in line with the National Program of Research (PNR) and strategic objectives set by the EU, with particular referral to Horizon 2020.

OGS is active in the Arctic Research, both in the field of Oceanography and Geology.
