Institute of BioEconomy – Biology, Agriculture and Food Sciences Department

The Institute for BioEconomy – IBE – was born on June 1, 2019 from the merger of Biometeorology Institute (IBIMET) and Trees and Timber Institute (IVALSA), which over the years have developed and complementarity in the strategic sector of the bioeconomy. This discipline, including the activities that use the bio-renewable resources of the terrestrial biosphere to produce food, materials and energy, therefore includes the comparison of primary production (agriculture, forests, fishing), as well as the industrial sectors of use and transformation of resources, the agri-food sector, the wood sector, part of the chemical industry, biotechnology and industry. Environmental sustainability strategies and the use of resources, the reduction of impacts, the strengthening of resilience and the support to mitigation are included in this theme, which therefore has a strong interdisciplinary value. A bioeconomy worthy of this name and location in this historical moment of change cannot be separated from the knowledge of the factors that regulate the function and survival of man-made systems, therefore from meteorology, climatology and oceanography, which belong to members of the Institute .
