Almost 60% of European rice is produced in Italy. This important goal is also achieved thanks to the research and the innovation that have been taking place locally, in all compartments of the rice production chain. Strengthening of the sustainability of the productive system in its economic, social, environmental, cultural and industrial aspects is being realized through a transdisciplinary commitment. Scientific and technological research, from basic molecular biology to the systemic level are involved in this process. In this context, research groups at the University of Milan have been collaborating locally and with national and international institutions, as well as with enterprises in the sector. The Rice Days Workshop is dedicated to rice research at the University of Milan and is promoted to define an updated portfolio of the activities carried out and to delineate prerequisites for new synergies and collaborations. National institutions and enterprises dedicated to rice will also be present. During the Rice Days Workshop, local research groups will be able to present their activities and to take part of discussion tables with the aim to examine relevant issues and perspectives of the rice sector in a multidisciplinary manner. Reports by national and international experts will also take place.
