We are looking to join a consortium offering an advanced expertise, including:
• remote sensing surveys by means of aircraft and drones;
• multiparametric measurements for soil properties estimation and monitoring;
• quantification of major elements and trace elements on a field scale;
• multitemporal surveys in the RGB, near-infrared, red-edge, thermal and gamma-rays spectral range;
• maps of spectral vegetation indexes for monitoring the health of the vegetation (e.g. chlorophyll content, leaf area index, water stress);
• counting and identification of plants in crop and agricultural land;
• realization of digital elevation models and orthophoto mosaics;
• prescription maps for optimizing fertilization, irrigation and treatments practices.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The Laboratory for Nuclear Technologies Applied to the Environment of the “Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca” (Ferrara, Italy) has a consolidated and multidisciplinary experience in the development of innovative environmental sensors as well as in the management, analysis an interpretation of multivariate data.
Our research group is currently participating in several research project funded by national and international entities.
Topic 1.1.1-2021 (RIA) Sustainable soil and water management for combating land degradation and desertification and promoting ecosystem restoration.
Topic 1.2.1-2021 (IA) Increasing the environmental and socio-economic performance of small scale farming systems through improvements in organisational aspects and new value chain governance models.
Topic 2.1.1 (RIA) Alleviating Mediterranean water scarcity through adaptive water governance.
Topic 2.2.1 (RIA) Up-scaling field practices based on agroecological practices to increase ecosystem services and biodiversity, to adapt the small farming systems to climate change and to increase farmers incomes
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.
