MIND FoodS Hub is the competence center entirely dedicated to boost food knowledge and create infrastructures for the study of the Food system as a strategic asset for the city. Through multidisciplinary skills it promotes agri-food research as an engine for innovation, development and social responsibility.
Located inside MIND "Milano Innovation District", the hub brings together synergic excellences of research bodies and private world top-players in the agri-food and related sectors.
The hub credo is that promoting food quality within balanced and sustainable diets truly represents an effective tool to prevent chronic diseases as well as a start point to further improve the supply chain, create new opportunities, reduce environmental impact and preserve biodiversity.
Food production is analysed and targeted towards nutritional improvement to cover consumer needs and evaluated for its lasting impacts on civil society. The presence of living labs gives citizens, researchers and experts the possibility to experiment the advantages of smart technologies first hand.
