Sustainable Innovations for Regenerative Agriculture in the Mediterranean Area
SIRAM will help to cope with the main challenges that the agricultural sector is facing in the 21st century by providing a comprehensive integration and implementation of sustainable solutions for regenerative agriculture across different Mediterranean areas.
The project aims to develop approaches to address climate change, pollution, pest control, and low-income issues under different smallholder framing systems, while at the same time working for restoration and regeneration of soil health and for the socio-economic evaluation of the before-mentioned approaches.
SIRAM is based on 4 pillars tested in 8 case studies, covering different pedo-climatic, ecological, and social areas around the Mediterranean.
New methodologies that will improve the sustainability and resilience of smallholder farming systems.
Develop pilot products that can be available for a scale production and delivery on the market by spinoffs and SMEs.
Filling knowledge gaps on regenerative agriculture, soil quality, biocontrol of pests and plant immune system.
