Welcome to GEA: our story, our mission

The name GEA draws its inspiration from Greek mythology, where it represents Mother Earth at the beginning of the world. However, for us, GEA is much more. It is the acronym for Green Economy (and) Agriculture, reflecting our vision and our commitment to a sustainable future.

GEA is the newest of the Caript Foundation’s agencies. Our mission is clear: to create a 25-hectare scientific and biotechnological park at the gateway to Pistoia where training, research, businesses, and state-of-the-art services can come together and collaborate. Our primary focus is in the realms of sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, the circular economy, and the well-being of our citizens.

We are committed to encouraging innovation within the agricultural system, making the most of the land, promoting local products, and preserving the landscape and environmental resources. Furthermore, we are devoted to safeguarding health and improving the quality of life through medico-pharmaceutical research and environmental education.

We are proud to be contributing to a more sustainable and prosperous future for present and future generations. Join us in our journey toward a better world, one that is greener and more equitable.
