Turning climate commitments into actionOctober 2021 - September 2025
How can we adapt to the intensifying weather conditions that threaten our way of life? From floods in Germany to wildfires in Greece and Turkey; water shortages in Northern Europe and heatwaves in Siberia, we are already experiencing events that impact people’s health, livelihoods and assets.
Fork-to-farm agent-based simulation tool augmenting BIOdiversity in the agri-food VALUE chainOctober 2021 - September 2025
The aim of the BioValue project is to set-up a holistic approach to the analysis of the link among biodiversity, the agro-food value chain, the environment and consumer’s preferences and health by employing a bottom-up approach to develop a dynamic and customizable tool to optimize the introduction of underutilized genetically diverse crops in the agri-food value chain throughout Europe. The idea is to explicitly analyse agent interactions and behaviour in the agri-food value chain in combination with various future climatic and water availability scenarios and to spur a self-growing dynamic process of biodiversity by mobilizing the market and social drivers.
