NOTE Agroecological Living Labs

Histagra and Gespic organize the Atlantic Agroecological LivingLabs Seminar within the framework of CISPAC


The CISPAC responds to the research maturation in the fields of social and human sciences in the SUG and more to the need to give endogenous research responses at the highest level to the challenge of what to do with the land that we have in the perspective of the environmental transition.


CISPAC is designed as a next-generation research center to produce knowledge about the Atlantic Landscapes. The Center is committed to generating proposals and new models that contribute to a sustainable management of the territory, to the analysis of the impact of anthropic actions and, consequently, to the creation of instruments for the transfer of knowledge to the productive sector and to the citizenship. The CISPAC provides services in the management of knowledge and science related to cultural landscapes, land management and cultural heritage, and social memory and sustainability.


Today, Friday October 8, following the lines of action of CISPAC, the Atlantica Agriculture LivingLabs Seminar was organized at Casa Europa (USC), which consists of a set of brief reports by producers, researchers and with the aim of reaching a meeting place and interaction between society and the university. It is a methodology tested in pioneering innovation centers with which it is sought to respond collectively to a global challenge: How can agro-ecological production be intensified? And how to design a living lab for Atlantic agro-ecological production. A strategic commitment to the New Green Deal.


Weaving university-society meeting places is a commitment to continue opening and learning about the problems of the Galician agricultural and livestock sector, with the aim of seeking solutions to its challenges.


The participants belong to the field of organic production, as well as to the Galician university system with direct link with the CISPAC (UdV and USC) and Spanish (Univ. Pablo de Olavide).
