In 2016-17, SerenDPT was the leading partner in a POR-FSE project called ITALIS (Innovazione, Territorio, Acqua, Lavoro e Imprenditoria Sociale). The project focused on Urban Agriculture and the Foodtech sector to explore a circular and collaborative economy model capable of fostering a chain of shared values ​​and to create quality employment in the production, processing, distribution and consumption of local agricultural products. In the context of the INN Veneto Program, ITALIS's goal was to create a community to support startups engaged in social innovation linked to 'food'.
