The history of the Center AA


The history of the Center

The Centre for Agriculture and Environment Research was formally established in June 2017, following the reform of CREA (formerly C.R.A.) consisting in merging the C.R.A. Research Units in Rome, Bari, Florence and Bologna.

The administrative headquarters of CREA-AA is in Rome, via della Navicella, where formerly the Research Centre for the Study of Plant-Soil Relations (CREA-RPS) and the Research Unit for Agriculture-Applied Climatology and Meteorology (CREA-CMA) were based. CREA-AA includes also the researchers from the agro-economy department (formerly INEA) studying issues consistent with the Centre's mission.

The Florence Research Centre for Agrobiology and Pedology (CREA-ABP) moved from the palace in Piazza Massimo D'Azeglio to the headquarters of Cascine del Riccio, belonging to a different research Center (CREA-DC).

The same Research Centre AA embraces the Beekeeping and Bachiculture Research Unit (CREA-API) and those researchers from the Research Centre for Industrial Crops (CREA-CIN) in Bologna dealing with modelling.

CREA-AA includes also the Research Unit for Dry Farming Systems (CREA-SCA), based in Bari.
