Aims
The PhD course aims to train researchers of international standing, able to design and carry out research in topics related to agri-food and environmental sciences. During the course, the student will acquire knowledge and skills in a multidisciplinary research area concerning modern agriculture and more generally the anthropic interaction with the environment. The objective is therefore to foster scientific training in the sector of valuable and smart agriculture, focusing on quality food and mitigation of the environmental impact, and sustainable use of environmental resources. The course also aims to train researchers capable of actively contributing to the economic, technological and scientific improvement of the agri-food and environmental sectors, with particular attention to well-being and collective health, preserving natural resources from a circular economy perspective.
