Emanuele Zannini (School of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University College Cork, Ireland)
Scientific coordinator support for the successful H2020 PROTEIN2FOOD and SMARTPROTEIN projects which received € 18 million EU funding and aim to develop high quality food protein from multi-purpose crops through optimized, sustainable production and processing methods. Dr Zannini has been involved in national, EU and international projects and has been the recipient of >€10 million in research funding from the EU, Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and several industry sponsored projects.
Developing on farm tools for climate change
Jonathan Hillier Cool Farm Tool First Developer
Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Modelling and Global Food Sytems. I have since worked in several universities (Bangor, UCL, Aberdeen, and Edinburgh) and Research Insitutes (James Hutton (SCRI) and INRA (Grignon) on crop and pest modelling, and on the environmental impacts (including greenhouse gases, nitrogen use, water use and biodiversity) of agriculture. Since 2008 involved in the development of decision support tools for farmers, businesses and policy advisors - including the Cool Farm Tool (www.coolfarmtool.org) for which was the original developer, and the CCAFS-MOT tool.
