These partnerships are critical for Luiss commitment to provide an excellent professional preparation and improve the educational experience of its students.
The Master in Food Law has promoted the signing of an Internship Agreement between Luiss University and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
Thanks to this agreement two students from the Master in Food Law will have the chance to be assigned as intern at FAO to support the FAO Decentralized Offices and FAO Divisions on overall themes related to food safety, social and environmental protection, responsible investment, value chain economics.
