This course was devised by the collaborations of University of Tuscia (DAFNE), University of Perugia (DSF) and Sapienza University of Rome among the initiatives promoted by NanoInnovation 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 sessions on topics such as application of nanotechnology in plant nutrition and protection, nanomaterials design and characterization, environmental and human safety.

The School 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.
