Winter School in “Food and Health”

Dear Partner,
I would like to ask you to distribute this information about a Winter School in “Food and Health” among your students. I am sure that this is a very nice and unique possibility also for your students for coming to Italy:
The University of Padova (Italy) and the University of Sydney (Australia) have the pleasure to invite you to the
 "Food & Health" Winter School which will be held in Padova, Italy from January 29 to February 10, 2018.
Lectures will be provided by professors from the University of Padova and the University of Sydney, as well as by FAO and Italian Anti-Adulteration and Health Unit experts.

The Winter School program focuses on the most relevant aspects of food quality and human nutrition, in order to understand how they are related and how they affect human health, through dietary habits. The focus is on the interaction between food, nutrition, and human health, in order to bridge the gap between different disciplines.

In the historic framework of Bo Building (Padova) and Villa Revedin Bolasco (Treviso) the Winter School will combine lectures with field trips to wineries and food industries, and social activities, thus providing an ideal setting for learning and networking.

The Winter School is open to a maximum of 40 advanced undergraduate and graduate students (10 places reserved for 3rd/4th year undergraduate students from the University of Sydney, and 10 for master students from University of Padova).

Students will be selected based on a motivational letter and on CV.
Applications need to be sent to Mara Thiene  by November 22nd, 2017. Students will be awarded 6 credit points for participating.

Enrolment fees: EUR 800 (students from the University of Sydney and the University of Padova are exempted).

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the "Food & Health" Winter School.
