CREA challenges

Agriculture, as never before, faces complex and ambitious challenges: from ongoing climate change to invasions by “alien" organisms and microorganisms, from growing demand for food to safe and nutritious production, while protecting the diversity of ecosystems, soil fertility, air and water quality.

CREA, the most important Italian agri-food research body, intends to make its contribution in this regard, with major research projects, able to radically innovate the way of farming in such a difficult context and capable of producing scientific knowledge, which will increase competitiveness, production efficiency and sustainability of our agricultural system, helping to adapt to climate change and increasing the quality of production.
