Continuing its cooperation with the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Apogee Information Systems designed and developed the website of the environmental research project ECORESILIENTE. The website describes the aims the project, presents the activities of the research team, the events they will participate, and in the future will also present the results and conclusions of the project.
The ECORESILIENTE project refers to the Research Line D 3.2, Topic 2: Adaptation to climate change, of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart). The main objective of the project concerns the development of best practices, indicators and good policies to support the preservation of ecosystem services, mitigating the negative effects due to climate change. In particular, "political and economic strategies" will be considered through the inclusion of best practices and indicators in a political context. Coordinator of the project is Prof. Ettore Capri, Ph.D, Director of the European Observatory for Sustainable Agriculture, OPERA, an independent research center and think tank of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.
