The Miguel Hernandez University organized a series of seminars in November and December 2020, aimed at students of the Degree courses in Agri-food and Agri-environmental Engineering and students of the Master’s Degree in Advanced Techniques for Research and Production in Fruit Growing.
During the meetings the objectives and expected results of the LIFE SUBSED project were illustrated. The students were also able to investigate the more technical aspects of the trials in progress in the Italian and Spanish experimental sites, evaluating the potential of marine sediment as an ingredient for sustainable nursery substrates.
On Friday 18 December 2020 Miguel Agulló Velasco, President of COITAGRA (Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros Técnicos Agrícolas y Graduados de Alicante) visited the demonstration site of the LIFE SUBSED project at the Miguel Hernandez University.
The UMH team illustrated the objectives and expected results of the project and accompanied the President on a visit to the experimental site of the SUBSED project. During the visit, the qualities of the plants in cultivation and the potential of the substrate based on marine sediment were assessed.
During the visit, the opportunities of the LIFE program for the development of new eco-sustainable technologies were also discussed, solutions that represent an incentive to the transition of companies towards more conscious circular economy models.
