Trieste, 27 February 2023
Promoting research and activities to better understand the dynamics of sustainable development and the dialogue between various scientific disciplines, with a special focus on scientific modeling to support the agro-ecological, energetic, and industrial transition: these are some of the objectives of the cooperation agreement between the Regenerative Society Foundation and FIT- Trieste International Foundation for Progress and Freedom of Science, represented by Andrea Illy and Prof. Stefano Fantoni.
The parties will cooperate within the Trieste Laboratory on Quantitative Sustainability (TLQS), a research network whose aim is to transfer and promote knowledge and to share research results to increase awareness on sustainability issues. It is divided into 7 clusters, each addressing a different aspect of sustainable development: from the blue economy to the food sector for planetary and human health; from climate change to data and social sciences; from industrial transition to terrestrial habitat’s monitoring. TLQS’ International Advisory Board is chaired by Andrea Illy and composed by 7 experts in different fields.
Last week TLQS organized the workshop “Science and sustainable food. How scientific instruments can help food and biodiversity issues for the planet and its inhabitant health”, a two-day workshop debating the challenges of sustainability in the food sector in three main areas: science, health, and society.
