ETIFOR organises this 'Science to practice' event, addressed to stakeholders of truffles value chains. It will be carried out in Norcia (Perugia, Italy).
The traditions related to NWFPs are deeply rooted in the culture of central Italy. The city of Norcia, Umbria region, is well known for truffles, black ones over all. Every year the city hosts a traditional fair of black truffles, called “Nero Norcia” that this year reaches the 56th edition. The fair is a great possibility to meet many stakeholders of the centre of Italy. For this reason, Incredible decided to organize, in partnership with the “Italian federation of truffles pickers” (FITA), Norcia municipality and the “Associazione Pietro Fontana”, a science to practice event aimed to deepen the knowledge related to the recent Italian fiscal law on NWFPs, approved at the end of 2018. There will be the possibility to discuss in a round table with the experts that worked at the law and representatives of the public and private sector.
The INCREDIBLE project aims to show how Non-Wood Forest Products (NWFP) can play an important role in supporting sustainable forest management and rural development, by creating networks to share and exchange knowledge and expertise. ‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) promotes cross-sectoral collaboration and innovation to highlight the value and potential of NWFPs in the region.
‘Innovation Networks of Cork, Resins and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin’ (INCREDIBLE) project receives funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement Nº 774632
