We are interested in joining, as a partner, a project in the topic of Sustainable Mediterranean agro-food value chain for regional and local development (Topic 1.3.1 and 2.3.1). Our research activities concerns the quality control and safety of crops and foods, focusing on mycotoxins and mycotoxigenic fungi. Our objectives are to implement an Integrated Pest Management and to develop Biopesticides – Including Natural substances, Chemical Mediators and Micro-organisms as Biocontrol agents.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The Biotechnology Center in the Technopole of Borj-Cédria is specialized in Plant Biotechnology, it develops research activities that satisfies the needs of the agricultural sector. The approach adopted is multidisciplinary and is based on the characterization and exploitation of the national phytogenetic heritage with biotechnological processes.
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.
