CNR ISAFOM

Studio e analisi dei processi fisici, chimici e biologici che determinano il funzionamento e la dinamica degli agro-ecosistemi negli ambienti a clima mediterraneo, per il miglioramento quali-quantitativo delle produzioni, per l’ottimizzazione dell’uso delle risorse naturali, e per la valorizzazione delle funzioni dei sistemi agricoli e forestali. Sviluppo e applicazione di metodi di ricerca e di innovazioni tecnologiche avanzate per il monitoraggio e la previsione degli impatti e delle risposte degli ecosistemi agrari e forestali alle pressioni antropiche e climatiche.

L’ISAFOM afferisce al Dipartimento di Scienze Bio-Agroalimentari del CNR ed ha una "massa critica" di 89 unità ripartito tra le sedi di Ercolano – NA (sede centrale), Catania, Rende (CS), e Perugia.

CNR - Isafom is partner of “LIVINGAGRO – Cross Border Living laboratories for Agroforestry” project funded under the ENI CBC Med Programme 2014 – 2020, first call for standard projects, referring to thematic objective A.2 “Support to education, research, technological development and innovation”, priority A.2.1 “Technological transfer and commercialization of research results”.

With a total budget of 3,3 Million Euros and a 2,9 Million EU-contribution through the ENI CBC Med Programme, LIVINGAGRO project involves 6 organizations from 4 different countries including the Regional forest agency for the development of Sardinia's territory and environment (Fo.Re.S.T.A.S.) in quality of Leading Beneficiary, the Italian National Research Council, Department of Biology, Agriculture and Food Science (PP1) and ATM Consulting sas (PP5) from Italy; the National Center for Agricultural Research and Extension (PP2) from Jordan; the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (PP3) from Lebanon and the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (PP4) from Greece.

LIVINGAGRO addresses the challenge of knowledge and technological transfer in Mediterranean agriculture and forestry systems for achieving and sharing good practices aimed at sustainable production, protecting biodiversity, enhancing transfer of innovation and increasing profitability for territories and main actors as well as stakeholders involved. Using an open innovation approach for co-creating economic and social values and interactions between supply and demand, eliminating geographical and cultural barriers, two Living Laboratories will be established focusing on olive multifunctional system (Living Laboratory 1) and grazed woodlands (Living Laboratory 2).
