Food markets have undergone a deep process of internationalization. Competitiveness encompasses efficiency as well as the capacity to satisfy consumers preferences and to fulfil the legal framework. In turn, the legal framework evolves along with consumers’ and society’s views and goals, but also needs to accompany the technical and organizational features of production. International commerce develops new trade routes, markets, and products, but also facilitates the spread of invasive alien species (IAS), causing important damage to the new environments. In this context, legal rules continuously evolve to prevent the introduction of IAS.
This Master focuses mainly on Food Law, on the one side, and on Scientific and Technical Innovation in food production processes. Besides, basic elements of the economic analysis of food chains and markets and phytosanitary analysis are also, given to the students.
