OpenAgri - New skills for new jobs in peri-urban agriculture

The City of Milan, along with Fondazione Politecnico di Milano, Politecnico di Milano, Università degli Studi di Milano, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Milan, Fondazione Parco Tecnologico Padano, Avanzi, Cineca, Future Food Institute, ImpattoZero, La strada società cooperativa sociale, Sunugal, Poliedra, IFOA, Mare and Food Partners, has won the "Urban Innovative Actions notice", funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Managed by the DG Regio, the call addresses urban issues destined to become of great importance for the EU.

The heart of the project is the redevelopment of the rural area of Cascina Nosedo. At the core of the project, that will last three years, there is an “Open Innovation Hub on PeriUrban Agriculture” as an integrated strategy to deliver innovation in existing and newly created nodes of the agrifood value chain, focusing on new skills, training, pilot projects for SMEs and startups ideas. The project will result in improved interactions between traditional knowledge holders and other more innovative actors between local and citywide realities engaged in product, services or process innovation. It is also expected to foster crosssector linkages and hybridization between different fields and actors with the ultimate aim of testing an innovation driven inclusive growth model.
