sPATIALS3 - Improvement of agrifood productions and innovative technologies for a safer and more secure and sustainable nutrition


sPATIALS3 is a technological and research hub involving 12 CNR Institutes belonging to 4 different Departments and 4 companies. Main objectives will be: obtainment of innovative food products improved for their nutritional and functional properties; provision and implementation of precision technologies to guarantee products quality, safety and traceability; development of innovative and eco-sustainable smart– and active-packaging to minimize and reuse wastes, where possible, and to increase food preservability; provision to consumers and producers of tools for results exploitation.

FNS-CLOUD: Food Nutrition and Security Cloud


In this project it is planned to implement a search engine demonstrator tailored for scientific food data. Couple food data with data on metrological tools.
Search and integrate food data within the FNS-Cloud.
Gives to users an overview of available data and organise them in a really useful way for them.

FilAgro – Innovative and sustainable strategies for the agri-food chain


The FILAGRO project aims to provide solutions to several issues that are emerging in the field of modern agriculture. They concern: production sustainability, biodiversity and environment preservation; improvement in food quality, safety and healthy and nutritional aspects; technology development in favor of industry; new knowledge dissemination. These issues are highlighted as of high importance in the EXPO 2015 and Horizon 2020 programs as well as in the 2013-2015 plan of the Agriculture Directorate of the Lombardy Region.

FHfFC - Future Home for Future Communities


Development of a genetic authentication method capable of discerning the animal species, including fish, in products sold in the market. Species identification is attained by the production of a species-specific DNA barcode, generated by the application of a new version of the TBP (Tubulin-Based-Polymorphism) method.

TBP Analysis


It’s a service of genetic authentication that applies to the recognition of different animal species and plant species and varieties. The service is offered to University, Research Centres and Companies. The service is based on the analysis and identification of genetic polymorphisms present in the introns  of the genes encoding for beta-tubulin. Each analysis releases a genomic profile, diagnostic of the species or variety analysed.
