NODES – Nord-Ovest Digitale E Sostenibile

NODES is an Innovation Ecosystem structured in a way such as to guarantee interdisciplinarity among its diverse themes and cross-fertilization of digital-driven technology and innovation.

36 months from 01/10/2022 to 30/09/2025

General aims

NODES’ vision is to boost the competitiveness of industries and research institutions, positioning the territory at a national and international level as an attractive “territorial system” for high-skilled talents and private investments.

CMCC role

CMCC is involved in two flagships: ForMiDaBiLÆ and VINO.
CMCC will provide technical support to ForMiDaBiLÆ (Forage system to make resilient Maize, Dairy and Biogas supply chains for a Lasting Agricultural Ecosystem) by focusing on climate impact on dairy herds from a productive point of view. It will focus on data collection in farms equipped with automatic milking systems in order to quantify the animal response to heath stress with the application of dynamic models.
CMCC will also contribute to VINO (VIneyard management for viNe production) with the provision of climate data and indicators under actual and future conditions; suitability analysis under climate change conditions; and use of crop models for testing climate change impacts.

Expected results
Promote the sustainable development of agricultural territories through digital innovation systems. Maps of suitability for the grapevine cultivation and for cultivations alternative /supplementary  to grapevine. Advanced vineyard management techniques and alternative crop production. Geospatial database, Earth observation and data analysis. Investigate and model the cattle response to heat stress and to define possible strategies to reduce the milk production losses in summer.

Coordinating organization
NODES Scarl: Politecnico di Torino, Università degli Studi di Torino, Università del Piemonte Orientale, Università degli Studi dell’Insubria, Università degli Studi di Pavia, and Università della Valle D’Aosta.
