The Department is part of regional and national partnerships, which include public institutions, business networks, cooperatives, associations and NGOs, including those active in the agri-food system and at the level of reception and socio-working integration of migrants.
The group directly involved in the project has experience in both research and action research and training, with particular attention to the issues of social inclusion and social innovation and sustainability (social, environmental and economic) of the agri-food chains.
In recent years, the staff has been involved in a number of projects funded by the European Union, the Ministry of Labor and national and local institutions.
