In any case, thanks and best regards
PostDoc in Ecology at Venice University on topic "An innovative and
sustainable technology for agrifood: aquaponics"
The research project aims at developing a pilot plant for aquaponics within the WWF protected area of Valle
Averto, with the aim of assessing the feasibility of a productive plant at a bigger scale. The system will be
sustainable, from the environmental point of view, and integrated from the production point of view, merging
fish farming with vegetable cultivation. Moreover, the experimental plant will represent an important
innovation for Veneto Region in the framework of agri-food technologies.
Project objectives will be achieved by combining the activities of setting up of the pilot plant with the
identification of experimental protocols, which will allow to calibrate and optimize the system. To this end, a
monitoring activity will be established, for collecting data on system functioning. Data will be subsequently
processed by means of statistical and modelling methodologies. The selected candidate will be actively
involved in all these research steps, having the opportunity to gather new theoretical and applied knowledge,
also through Action Research and Coaching activities.
