Lucía López Marco

Técnico de proyectos de investigación, Instituto Agronómico Mediterráneo de Zaragoza

I hold a Degree in Veterinary Medicine and a Master in Agroecology and Rural Development. Furthermore, I am currently studying a Master on Scientific Journalism and Communication.
My work as European Research Projects Technician at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza is mainly focused in knowledge transfer, being my particular areas of expertise extensive livestock systems, local breeds, rural development, food-sovereignty, ecological traditional knowledge and climate change.
I am also very active in civil associations and social networks dealing with rural and food production issues. I manage a blog, called Mallata.com, and I take part of the Spanish Platform for Extensive Livestock and Pastoralism and the Spanish Scientific Network and Association for studying the reduction of GHG in the agroforestry sector (REMEDIA). Moreover, I work with Friends of the Earth coordinating the ‘Mincha d’aqui’ (Eat locally) project in the Alto Gállego County (Huesca, Spain) on boosting local agrifood initiatives in the Pyrenees.
