Hort@ is a Spin off of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. It originated in 2008 from the idea of its five founding members (including the said Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore) coming from the world of research and production. Their aim was to satisfy the increasing interest of the agricultural world and consumers in more sustainable production.
The partners bring along several years of experience in the field of research and experimentation, as well as vast expertise in national and international relations. Hort@ has continued to increased collaboration with young professionals who bring skills from different sectors.
Hort@ is a permanent platform for enhancing results from research in the agroalimentary sector through:
The development of decision support systems (DSSs) based on new Information & Communication Technologies (ICTs)
The transfer of technological innovation to production areas at a national and international level, in the sectors of intensive and extensive farming, agroenergetic production, quality brands, agroalimentary supply chains, with particular reference to productivity, environmental sustainability and food safety
The design, development and creation of new production itineraries and new products/technical means to put on the market
