Concept
Establish a research campus of international
excellence in AG-BIOTECH Develop a science park
hosting international innovative firms
RESEARCH CAMPUS Provides Science and Human
Capital
SCIENCE PARK Provides Business Opportunities
and Industry Contacts

Committed To
1. Improving competitiveness in crop and
livestock breeding 2. Fostering genetic
improvement and pathogen resistance of animal and
crop species 3. Ensuring food safety and quality
through molecular diagnostics 4. Preserving
landraces and their typical products

1. LOCATION The Po Valley
  • A strong tradition in agribusiness Lodi is
    1 in Italy for milk production per cow Lodi
    is 1 for corn crop, 239 bushels per acre
    (15,000 kg/ha)
  • Lodi is the gate to the Agribusiness district of
    Lombardy and Emilia
  • The Milan State University is transferring both
    faculties of Veterinary Medicine and a Department
    of Agriculture to the Science Park
  • Several research centers are already located in
    Lodi (e.g. Monsanto)
  • The scientific park is endorsed by international
    and local government European Union, Italian
    Government, Lombardy Region, Lodi Province, Lodi
    City Council

1. LOCATION 17 miles from Milan
Lodi
  • 17 Miles south of Milan
  • A rapid train connects the Park to Milan subway
    system, with 1 train every 20 (10 during rush
    hours) by 2006
  • 13 Miles from Linate Airport
  • 40 Miles from Malpensa Airport
  • 2 Miles from freeway exit A1 Milano-Roma
  • Milano-Roma railroad station

Section 1. Markers and animal genomes (meat
quality)
  • Dr. Elisabetta Giuffra
  • (former Uppsala University, Sweden)
  • Resistance mechanisms to diseases
  • Improvement of meat quality through gene
    expression studies
  • Creation of a swine genetic database, with
    reference to disease resistance

13

    improvement and protection of animal species

14
Section 3. Markers and plant genomes
  • Dr. Carlo Pozzi
  • (former Max Planck Institute, Germany)
  • Genomics applied to horticulture and cereals,
    particularly to diagnose and monitor pathogens
  • Research of molecular probes for MAS of peach and
    other drupes
  • Crop quality

15
Section 4. Bioinformatics
  • Dr. Alessandra Stella
  • (former University of Guelph, Canada)
  • Statistics and bioinformatic tools to support
    advance breeding in crops and animals
  • New software and Database to store DNA and
    phenotypic data
  • Genetic of crops and animals and its association
    to the economy of farming

16
Section 5. Genomic Platform

4. FACILITIES International Cooperation
The Parco Tecnologico is planning co-operation
projects MILK for Bolivia Peru A humanitarian
project sponsored by several Universities and
International associations. Its aim is to reduce
milk dependency of South America countries. At
present we have increased 5-folds (from 1,5 to 7
liters) milk production in the area. Within the
project, the building of a creamery is under
evaluation.

5. Business Opportunity why with the Parco
Tecnologico Padano
Location Key place to access Southern Europe
Markets Research High-flying researchers in
molecular AG-biotech from all over the
world Infrastructure University, Public
Private Research Centers, Government and Business
gathered together to reach excellence Facilities
Already geared for a 10-year development program
