The Agency for Services in the Agri-food Sector of the Marche (ASSAM), established with the L.R. n. 9 of 14 January 1997, is a public economic body and constitutes the regional reference and connection tool between the production system and the world of research.
Its main functions include carrying out studies and research in collaboration with universities, institutes and research institutions. In this context, it implements projects in the agronomic sector (cereal farming, horticulture, industrial crops, viticulture, olive growing and fruit growing) with particular attention to the organic sector and low environmental impact. It offers services in the field of certification and traceability, analysis of agri-food products, soil management, forestation and agrometeorology. It also provides for the application of phytosanitary regulations on the regional territory.

The Marche Region, as part of the development, promotion and protection policies of agro-ecosystems and quality production, has approved the Regional law n. 12 of 3 June 2003 “Protection of animal and plant genetic resources of the Marche region”, entrusting the operational management of the same to ASSAM. The protection concerns animal and plant genetic resources such as species, varieties, races, populations, ecotypes, clones and cultivars, indigenous, threatened with genetic erosion or at risk of extinction due to their abandonment or genetic pollution and for which there is a economic, scientific, environmental, landscape or cultural interest.

3A – PTA has been operating for over 20 years to ensure the improvement and maintenance of the quality of agricultural and agri-food products. It is characterized by its high specialization and by the possibility of providing a wide range of services, directly – through 3A – or through the other operating companies.
In harmony with the planning and the guidelines identified by the regional, national and community legislator and as an operational tool of the Umbria Region, 3A – PTA proposes itself as a subject capable of synthesizing the proposals and making them available to agricultural and agri-food companies present on the market in the form of services:
quality certification, food safety and consumer protection
high education and innovative professional profiles
innovation and research for business support and technology transfer
definition of partnerships for international projects
information, marketing and promotion

3A-Parco Tecnologico Agroalimentare dell’Umbria has been commissioned by the Region of Umbria to coordinate the activities of the “Biodiversity Conservation Service” in close technical-scientific collaboration with the Department of Applied Biology and the Department of Agronomic and Environmental Sciences of the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Perugia.
The actions undertaken concern various areas of intervention:
prospecting and research campaigns on the territory in order to identify new accessions of germplasm;
securing the material by inserting it, as appropriate, in the different sections of the Germplasm Bank of the Umbria Region.
initiatives aimed both at the characterization and study of the recovered varieties, and at their enhancement and promotion.
