RESEARCH FELLOW antonella.labbate(AT)ipsp.cnr.it publications: Orcid personal details and research activity: People Curriculum Vitae My research activity was related to my dissertation in food sciences and technologies. In particular, the activity consisted of two parallel studies concerning the assessment of the market and consumer preferences for innovative foods such as legume-based snacks. This is because both food companies and the consumer move their choices with regard to issues that are increasingly common today such as increased attention to health, the environment and therefore sustainability. And here on the market there are…

Barone Vito

RESEARCH FELLOW vito.barone(AT)ipsp.cnr.it 080.544.3126 publications: Orcid personal details and research activity: People Curriculum Vitae Dr. Vito Barone has a Master’s Degree in “Plant Medicine” (LM 69) at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro”. During the curricular internship, different hydrothermal-alkaline processes were tested to synthetize zeolites starting from waste materials (glass and aluminum), to evaluate in vitro the antimicrobial activity against some phytopathogens. Currently, he deals with analyses aimed at agronomic-productive and technological evaluation for investments in tree crops alternative to olive cultivation, in line with agricultural regeneration and production differentiation…
