Nowadays, conventional agriculture faces many challenges in the complex scenario of climate change, global population rise, and lack of resources. In this sense, Nanotechnology represents a sustainable way to boost agri-food supply chains by reducing emissions, lowering the number of agrochemicals, and giving innovative tools to manage crops.

The course will give a deepened overview of the potential use of nanotechnology in agri-food applications. Topics will include the application of nanotechnology in plant nutrition and protection, nanomaterials design and characterization, and environmental and human safety.

The Summer School “Nanotechnology in Agriculture” is one of the initiatives promoted by NanoInnovation Conference and Exhibition 2023 (18-23/09) hosted by the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering - Sapienza University of Rome.
