Climate-smarter and sustainable: the future of landscape management in Italy


High performance computing, climate projections, data analysis techniques, agriculture, cutting-edge applications and services for better land management: if we were to describe the Highlander project, these are probably the words we would use.

Thanks to High Performance Computing, the project integrates high-resolutions climate simulations, satellite observations, ground monitoring into decision support tools for a better and sustainable management of interacting natural resources, human systems and activity sectors.

The project is coordinated by CINECA, which will make available its supercomputing infrastructure. With 8 out of 9 partners that are research institutes, universities, companies, regional environmental protection agencies based in Italy, the project has markedly a national scope.

Climate change influences the availability of water resources and makes more and more necessary an accurate distribution between civil, industrial, energy, agricultural and ecological use.
