Thematic Strand 1

Sustainability of Agri-food and Forestry Ecosystems in a changing environment

Mário Santos

Aims to deliver integrated analytical and modelling frameworks to detect agricultural, forestry and ecological changes in rural landscapes. It will integrate natural and social sciences concepts to develop and integrate novel analytical frameworks and tools that contribute to progress in fundamental and applied fields of environmental research (Task 1.1) and ecological sustainability in agri-food and forestry ecosystems (Task 1.2).

Task 1.1

Integrated monitoring of climate and environmental impacts

Task 1.1 aims to (i) develop and apply new analytical technologies to (ii) understand climatic and environmental forcing on target ecosystems under current conditions; (iii) assess future scenarios of climate and environmental change to develop, test and implement suitable mitigation and adaptation measures, such as riparian restoration (e.g. to assess ecosystem service provisioning of green infrastructures) or bioclimatic cultivar adaptation (e.g. crop zonation).

Task 1.2

Sustainability in agri-food and forestry ecosystems

Task 1.2 researchers are experts in multivariate analysis and modelling of impacts of habitat and land use change on terrestrial and aquatic environments, ecosystem services and characterization of agri-food and forestry systems.

Thematic Strand 2

Technology & innovation in Agri-food and Forestry chains for a more competitive bioeconomy

Raul Santos

Aligned with RIS3 policy, Thematic Strand 2 explores innovative approaches to develop and update processes and technologies to crop and food products, biological materials and agri-food residues. TS2 gives added-value to agri-forestry ecosystems, agri-food and forestry products and co-products, boosting regional and national economic growth.

Task 2.1

Innovative technologies and processes

Task 2.1 focuses on a major unit objective - optimization and development of innovative technology for more competitive agri-food and forestry production chains. TS2 optimizes solutions for current and future stakeholders, boosting competitiveness and income by improving food and forestry crop productivity, reducing management costs and increasing profit.

Task 2.2

Valorisation of bio-based products and and co-products

Task 2.2 studies the potential of agri-food and forestry residues, native flora and aromatic and medicinal plants to develop new high bio-based value products.

Highlighted Project

BRESOV - Breeding for Resilient, Efficient and Sustainable Organic Vegetable production [GA 774244]

Start Date: 2018/05
Duration: 60 months

Read more

The recently started European project BRESOV (“Breeding for Resilient, Efficient and Sustainable Organic Vegetable Production“) has set out to improve the competitiveness of three important vegetable crops (broccoli, snap bean and tomato) in an organic and sustainable environment. With a strong participation of stakeholders from the breeding and farming sector, the project aims to create a pipeline for crop improvement that will accelerate the production of high-quality organic seeds for breeders and farmers around the world.
