• 2021 – Programma d’intervento per l’analisi della rete meteorologica umbra e suo adeguamento agli standard internazionali. This project has been founded by Umbria regional authorities. In particular, the applied meteorology section of CRC has outlined a regional strategy in order to improve the regional meteorological network in Umbria.
  • 2018 – 2020 – Spatialmeteo DSS. This project has been founded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (2014-2020). UNIPG was in charge of developing automatic procedures for the spatial interpolation of agro-meteorological data. (
  • 2018 – 2020 – SMARTMETEO: Network for the development of an innovative agro-meteorological and phytopatological monitoring system. This project has been founded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (2014-2020). The goal was to implement a regional network aimed to support phytopathological modeling and smart alert systems in order to: increase farm resilience to adverse meteorological phenomena; increase resilience by means of intelligent identification and early treatment of plant-pathology technologies; reduction in the use of pesticides. UNIPG was in charge of developing automatic procedure for meteorological data quality control. (
  • 2014 – 2015 – MeteoWine. Monitoring of climatic and environmental conditions for the development of meteorological models and plant protection models for the production of high quality grapes in Umbria. UNIPG was in charge of introducing and developing innovative methods and technologies for the monitoring of meteorological conditions in Umbria. (
