We are looking forward to join as a partner a stablished working group in RIA calls topics 2.1.1 and 2.3.1, although we are available to other proposals.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
We are part of the CNR (National Research Council) in Italy particularly of IBBR (Institute of Bioscience and Bioresources) http://ibbr.cnr.it/ibbr/. We have esperience in applying in previous PRIMA proposals and H2020 projects, making us active contributors in proposals that need our expertise.
Our research team dedicate its activities to environmental monitoring and food quality control and safety throughout the use of chemical nanowire MOX gas sensors coupled with chemical and microbiological classical techniques. Using the volatile fingerprint of a determinate environment or food matrix it’s possible to determinate if a chemical or microbiological contamination is present or assure the authenticity and traceability of the product. Chemical MOX gas sensors once trained using known samples and machine learning algorithms can provide a single answer in less than a minute or perform continuous measurements as well.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
