Agri-food: ENEA scientific advisor to Seeds&Chips 2018
ENEA will be the scientific advisor at Seeds&Chips, the Food Innovation Summit that will take place from 7 to 10 May 2018 in Milan and that will bring together representatives from companies, the academic world, institutions, opinion leaders and media from around the world to discuss food innovation and agri-food issues.
At the Summit, ENEA and Seeds&Chips will analyze the potential of technology in terms of sustainability and human health, presenting the best solutions and the most innovative projects involving a more efficient management of natural resources for a global economic development.
ENEA’s participation in the event will focus on two pillars: technology transfer and development cooperation. “In particular”, said Massimo Iannetta, Head of ENEA Biotechnologies and Agroindustry Division, “we will present our products for the management of water resources in developing countries, which we carry out together with the Ministry of the Environment as climate change mitigation actions”.
“It is a great honour for us to be able to work with ENEA and count on its scientific advisory”, commented Marco Gualtieri, founder and Chairman of Seeds&Chips. “Innovation, technology and sustainability are key sectors for growth and today we have all the tools to be highly competitive but, to grow, it is necessary to invest in new business models and technologies, especially supporting young people, for a responsible and increasingly sustainable economic development”.
