Nanotechnology in Agriculture


                                                               First Edition


Aim: This course was devised by the collaborations of University of Tuscia (DAFNE), University of Perugia  (DSF) and University of Rome La Sapienza (SBAI) among the initiatives promoted by NanoInnovation Conference and Exhibition 2022 . Modern Agriculture is nowadays facing many challenges in the complex scenario of climate change, global population rise and lack of resources. In this sense Nanotechnology represents a sustainable way to boost agri-food supply chains, by reducing emissions, lowering the amount of agrochemicals and giving innovative tools to manage crops. The course will give a deepened overlook on the potential use of nanotechnology in different fields of agri-food applications. 20 academic and industrial international experts will discuss seven session on topics such as application of nanotechnology in plant nutrition and protection, nanomaterials design and characterization, environmental and human safety.

Who: Nanotechnology in Agriculture is aimed at PhD students and Post Doc researchers. The course is limited to 50 participants. Preferences will be given on the base of registration date. At moment attendance is permitted only with green pass or equivalent Covid-free certification.

When: 30th June - 1st July 2022. Pre-registrations will open on 15th of March 2022.

Where: The first edition of the Summer School Nanotechnology in Agriculture is hosted by the Department of Agriculture and Forest Sciences (DAFNE) of University of Tuscia, Via S. Camillo de Lellis snc, 01100, in the beautiful landscape of Viterbo, a medieval city in northern Latium, just few kilometers far from Rome.
