Pino Calcagni graduated now!

With sincere pride we announce that on Tuesday 23 January 2018 our President Pino Calcagni, also Vice Chairman of  INC, has held a Lectio Magistralis at the Caspian University in Almaty, Kazakhstan, following a very personal invitation of the Rector of the University after the untiring efforts and the constant dedication in the country for the development of projects for a modern agriculture through financial aids and transfer of know-how to local farmers (as already realized with big success in Eastern European countries), with the purpose to create new production areas for hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and pistachios, partly on soils coming from the traditional and today quite unprofitable fruit cultivation.



Calcagni’s Lectio ranged from the development of tree nut crops in the last 60 years and the expectations of consumption towards 2030 in consideration of emerging countries like China and India, details on the beneficial characteristics of nuts, to the hot issue of worldwide climate change and to the economic opportunities and feasibility of agro-industrial projects in the Kazak territory.


Under a big applause by students, professors and the Degree Commission, Pino Calcagni has been conferred  with a Laurea ad Honorem. After 60 years of experience and engagement he is considered Master and Teacher worldwide.

With this important recognition, in fact, Pino Calcagni confirms once again his prestige in the entire tree nut and dried fruit world, today not only at industrial level but increasingly also in agricultural and agronomic activities.

And last not least, this confirms once again his particular social sensitiveness creating working opportunities and raising enthusiasm in economically and climatically different regions.
