Expected results

The tool that will be developed is represented by a web platform for the sharing and dissemination of knowledge and the creation of synergies for the development of local strategies aimed at reducing the obstacles and difficulties currently detected in accessing funding, in order to stimulate organic and sustainable agricultural practices to achieve environmental and climate objectives in the regional context.


Activity

The activities of the project aim to develop a sharing platform designed to overcome the main critical issues identified in the regional territory and which currently limit the development and diffusion of organic and sustainable agricultural practices. In particular, the platform will be developed on the web and hosted within a web portal and will consist of the following tools:

  • Interactive contents that allow in an intuitive and simplified way to increase the awareness of the actors of the regional agricultural sector about the major environmental and climatic problems that the regional agricultural production faces and all the possible opportunities connected to the solution, with particular reference to innovative solutions related to organic and sustainable agriculture;
  • Creation of a blog that allows direct exchange between potential partners for proposals;
  • Plenary and direct meetings (through workshops, lectures, courses, etc …) between actors of the research and agro-forestry business in order to develop products that meet the needs and at the current level of knowledge of the actors involved;
  • Development of a web-survey aiming at addressing the types of proposals that best suit to issues of interest.
