In the middle of a region characterized by an highly intensive farming and animal rearing and by very specialized food industry for the production of high quality and high priced Italian foods and wines the Ph.D course in ANIMAL and FOOD SCIENCE is offered by the University of Padova. The University of Padova is ranked first in Italy for the research quality in agriculture and animal rearing. The Ph.D course covers two main fields of interest: Animal Science and Food Science. Strong connections between these fields of research are assured by common education activities and integrated research projects.

Strong cooperation with a number of other universities across the world, with Italian and European organizations of producers, private companies, and public institutions allow jointed research activities, seminars and periods of stage. Attendance to stages abroad for some months, International meetings and conferences is strongly recommended. The final thesis consists in a collection of peer reviewed papers published in top ranking scientific journals.
