Food and Health

The Master of Science in Food and Health aims to train professionals to address the complexities and issues concerning the relations between food, nutrition and health, within an international context. 

Food and Health is based on a strong multidisciplinary approach and involves the participation of eight Departments of the University of Padua.

The educational project includes a training program that evolves from the analysis of the environmental footprint of harvest and post-harvest of food products and continues with economics and the analysis of the agri-food market, the issues concerning food safety, the aspects related to human nutrition, the mechanisms of metabolic regulation and the interaction between organism and food, including physiology and nutrition food-related diseases.




The Community Gathering event brought together students, staff, and professors from the Food and Health Master's program to mark the end of the academic year. Participants engaged in inspiring TED-style presentations, shared valuable experiences, and explored the profound influence of Artificial Intelligence on the food and health industry.

ICPU is a joint initiative by the University of Padua and the University of Sydney which offers an exciting international mobility opportunity. This interdisciplinary program provides 6 credits and is designed to develop vital soft skills. Through diverse group dynamics and multicultural collaboration, students from different backgrounds tackle real industry challenges, fostering teamwork and problem-solving abilities.
