Furfural, furfurylamine and furfurylamide are important intermediates in the production of various pharmaceuticals. The development of new catalytic methods and materials for the production of this class of intermediate compounds from lignocellulosic residues will have significant economic and environmental benefits. Lignocellulosic wastes are abundant and renewable resources that can be used as a source of valuable chemical products. The conversion of these materials into pharmaceutical intermediates using continuous flow chemistry is an important field of research that has attracted a great deal of interest in recent years. Flow chemistry is an important step towards sustainability and digitalization of pharmaceutical industry. Continuous flow processes enable the utilization of advanced technology and green chemistry, leading to faster, safer and more sustainable APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) production. Under this context, the development of new active and selective catalysts is essential for the efficient conversion of these wastes into high-value products. The objectives of the project are aligned with current trends in green chemistry, which aims to develop sustainable processes that minimize waste generation and reduce environmental impact. Thus, this project aims to develop new catalytic materials for the conversion of lignocellulosic wastes into pharmaceutical intermediates with particular interest in the catalytic deactivation mechanism. This research has significant potential to contribute to the development of sustainable processes for the production of high value chemicals in industry.Project mission: To transform pharmaceutical manufacturing with green and digital methods, creating eco-friendly drug production routes, and adopting innovative technologies. We will do this by collaborating with 7 universities, 1 research center, and several industry partners during our secondments. 5 de diciembre de 2023 localhostNone MERGING SUSTAINABLE AND DIGITAL CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF GREENER-BY-DESIGN PHARMACOLOGICAL localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/suspharma_detail.png" alt="suspharma" title="suspharma" />The EU-funded SusPharma project plans to design safe- and sustainable-by-design chemicals for use in pharmaceuticals.

Outside this control system are the diffuse sectors, less intensive in energy use (residential, transport, waste, agriculture, fluorinated gases and other industries) but responsible for around 40% of EU GHG emissions.Regulation (EU) 2018/842 of the European Parliament and of the Council, shows the interest of the EU in promoting the reduction of emissions from these sectors. To do this, it is necessary to develop regulatory and operational frameworks at the National or Regional level that channel the compensation interest of these sectors towards actions capable of sequestering additional Carbon to that fixed by the natural environment. LIFE CO2RK develops a battery of integrated actions in 3 Member States, at national and regional level, with different starting points in terms of political, legal and operational maturity. The goal is to complete the design and development of legal, administrative, financial and technical tools that allow the certification and registration of the carbon sequestered by forest management practices, enable its exchange in Compensation and channel investments from diffuse sectors in exchange for offset carbon. This private financial flow that can be essential for sustaining the Phagaceae forests in the EU, which due to their slow growth are not being used in CO2 capture policies, despite that scientific evidence ensures that the complex ecosystems they generate have a high capacity for CO2 fixation. The project will be developed in cork oak (Quercus suber L.) forests and replicated in beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) forests, whose products do not emit CO2 but fixes it for a long useful life (cork in industries, wood in construction). The results can be extrapolated to a family with a large distribution throughout the EU, in complementary habitats in the Natura2000 Net, with a great impact in biodiversity and socio-economy. 19 de septiembre de 2023 localhostNone Maximising the CO-benefits of agricultural Digitalisation through conducive digital ECoSystems localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/Logo-Codec-horizontal_detail.png" alt="CODECS" title="CODECS" />CODECS is a four-year Horizon Europe project that gathers 33 partners all around Europe and which is coordinated by the University of Pisa. The project aims to improve the motivation and the capacity of European farmers to understand and adopt digitalisation as an enabler of sustainable and transformative change.CODECS will develop, and turn into concepts, methods, tools, evidence, a vision of "sustainable digitalisation" with the goal of improving the collective capacity to understand, assess and foresee the full range of benefits and costs of farm digitalisation, and to build digital ecosystems that maximise the net benefits of digitalisation.CODECS has established a network of 21 Living Labs, comprised of farmers, knowledge intermediaries, stakeholders, and policymakers, to address emerging agricultural challenges. These Living Labs will take a system-level approach to analyse farms and evaluate the impact of digital technologies on economic, social, and environmental outcomes. By examining the synergies and trade-offs between these different factors, the Living Labs will provide valuable insights to inform policymaking and support sustainable farming practices. 19 de julio de 2023 localhostNone Phytophthora-induced decline of fagaceae ecosystems in Southern Europe exacerbated by climate change: preserving ecosystem services through improved integrated pest management localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/FAGESOS 2_detail.JPG" alt="fagesos 2" title="fagesos 2" />Plant health and forest decline are nowadays becoming a challenge for conservation of agroforestry systems. To ensure the preservation of these ecosystems it is necessary to improve tools and strategies enhancing their adaptation to the outbreak of Alien Invasive Plant Pathogens caused by climatic change. Phytophthora diseases are increasing their impact and distribution range in evergreen oak and chestnut ecosystems of the Mediterranean basin, boosted by temperature increase and higher frequency of extreme weather events such as flooding and drought. Scarce public awareness of the problem, severe human impact on forest areas and the new EU regulation on fertilizers, that limits the use of K-phosphonate, the most efficient and ecofriendly molecule to mitigate disease impact, further increase the risk of epidemic spread of these diseases. Challenged Forest Ecosystems need improved tools &amp; strategies to enhance their adaptation to the outlined issue, finally ensuring their preservation as important natural carbon sinks. Indeed, FAGESOS will introduce tools to contrast diseases and enhance forests' resilience, by: The delivery of regional maps for risk- and impact assessment of Phytophthora diseases in the Mediterranean basin in diverse current and predicted climatic scenarios, as a tool for policy makers and forest managers The development, validation, implementation and dissemination of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) protocols, tailored to the specific target ecosystem, including a strictly scheduled use of new biomolecules and microorganisms with proven efficacy. Treatment protocols will be complemented by hygiene measures to prevent disease-spread The delivery of fully accessible monitoring protocols, based on validated, innovative models &amp; technologies Intense communication, dissemination and capacity building activities, targeting different stakeholders to raise awareness and induce adaption of behaviour. The project will be implemented in Italy, Spain and Portugal through a multi-actor approach. 19 de junio de 2023 localhostNone Robust and accessible modelling for an effective management of agricultural soil erosion in Europe localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/Logo iMPACt_detail.png" alt="impact-erosion" title="impact-erosion" />Soil erosion modelling can help define efficient and targeted mitigation strategies by identifying the long-term controlling factors and the areas where, and periods during which, soil is at high risk of erosion. However, to define such strategies, there remains a lack of modelling approaches a) able to provide with longer term baseline information which to measure the success or otherwise of mitigation strategies at the catchment scale and b) accessible and robust enough to be used, understood, and trusted by users with more or less expertise, including researchers, land managers and policy makers. In response, this project will improve the robustness and accessibility of quantitative methods for supporting agricultural land management. For this purpose, we will develop a parsimonious soil erosion model, iMPACt-erosion, to support agricultural land management in Europe at the catchment scale. The development philosophy will be based on three principles: robustness, transparency, and accessibility. For a robust model evaluation, model simulations will be compared to multi-decadal soil loss estimations estimated from fallout radionuclides and tree mound measurements. The model and its code will be easy to read and understand by users with more or less expertise. The model accessibility will be achieved by using interactive Jupyter Notebooks (, a modelling environment that combines executable code, rich media and interactive visualization of data and model results. This translates into a more fluent conversation between the user and the model and an easier exploration of the model results and the impact of possible agricultural management scenarios. 21 de abril de 2023 localhostNone
