Logo Università degli Studi di Milano



The Department of Food, Environmental and Nutritional Sciences (DeFENS) is the offshoot of the merger of three UNIMI Departments: the DIPSA (Department of Protection of Agro-food and Urban systems and Valorisation of Biodiversities), the DISMA (Department of Agro-food Molecular Sciences) and the DISTAMĀ (Department of Food and Microbiological Sciences and Technologies). Its mission is to promote continuity of research and teaching through synergy between the three Departments, exploiting the specific experience of each Department to promote harmonic, interdisciplinary development of all research and teaching activities in the sector of Food and Agro-Environmental sciences.
