La Rivista di Scienze Gastronomiche è un progetto editoriale dell’Università di Pollenzo (CN) che intende offrire uno spazio online di raccolta, condivisione e divulgazione di contributi scientifici aventi per oggetto il cibo, l’alimentazione e le “scienze gastronomiche” nel loro significato olistico, complesso e multidisciplinare.

Tale iniziativa si sviluppa alla luce dell’attuale dibattito internazionale sul cibo che evidenzia la necessità di un approccio sistemico e interconnesso, che coinvolge tutte le discipline e le conoscenze, tanto quelle sociali e umane quanto quelle della terra e della tecnologia.

A tal fine, la rivista ospita, da un lato, una selezione dei migliori lavori di tesi degli studenti dell’Università svolti a conclusione del percorso di studi (Laurea Triennale, Laurea Magistrale, Master); dall’altro, contributi, articoli e saggi di carattere accademico da parte di docenti, ricercatori, dottorandi e studiosi.
