Smart technologies, agriculture and environment: challenges and perspectives
The workshop addresses recent advances in the field of the applications and implications of emerging technologies in agriculture. New materials, chemical products (e.g., nanopesticides) and advanced technologies have been proposed in recent years to improve and optimize crop production, and reduce its environmental impact. Nanotechnologies have been applied in recent years in agriculture, in particular in the development of improved formulations of pesticides and fertilizers. Moreover, advanced geomatics has been recently introduced to optimize field work.
This workshop focuses on recent advances in these fields, addressing in particular implications and opportunities to minimize environmental impacts, with a specific focus on water resources. The workshop is proposed in the framework of the Internationalization project “Impact of emerging contaminants and engineered nanoparticles on water quality” funded by Compagnia di San Paolo and is jointly organized by McGill University and Politecnico di Torino.
Registration to the workshop (both for oral contributors and attendees) is requested and is free of charge. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12 January 2017.
