Top Part time Masters in Biological & Life Sciences in Europe. Master Management de la sécurité alimentaire des villes Please note that this program is entirely taught in FRENCH Le Master "Management de la sécurité alimentaire des villes", habilité par le Ministère de l’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche, a pour objectif de former des architectes locaux du développement de la sécurité alimentaire. Ces cadres expérimentés sont capables de construire une méthode pragmatique et efficace d’évaluation de cette dernière. Ils sont amenés à occuper des postes à responsabilités dans différents secteurs. Compétences visées Acquérir les connaissances techniques nécessaires à la compréhension des multiples facettes de la sécurité alimentaire ; Acquérir et/ou approfondir les compétences permettant de gérer des équipes pluridisciplinaires impliquées dans l’analyse des problèmes de sécurité alimentaire, à savoir : animer, coordonner, travailler en équipe, savoir s’entourer, avoir un sens de l’organisation et de la planification (...) ; Être capable d’avoir une vision très large de la problématique sécurité alimentaire tant dans le diagnostic que dans l’élaboration des propositions en y associant tout autant un esprit analytique que synthétique. Le contexte Malgré les progrès considérables réalisés tant au niveau de la production agricole qu’à celui de la transformation et de la conservation des produits, ou encore de la distribution des denrées alimentaires, le nombre de personnes souffrant de la faim ou de malnutrition dans le monde augmente. La forte hausse du prix de certaines matières premières, amorcée en 2007, a démontré de manière flagrante "la fragilité du système alimentaire mondial et la vulnérabilité de la sécurité alimentaire" (Sommet mondial de l’alimentation, 2009). Cette situation ne devrait cesser de se dégrader, eu égard aux simulations portant sur l’évolution démographique mondiale et, plus encore, régionale, avec une part relative accrue des populations des pays en développement et en transition. Enfin, l’urbanisation croissante rend encore plus complexe la gestion de cette sécurité alimentaire. Concevoir la mise en œuvre des moyens permettant de gérer la disponibilité et l’accessibilité des ressources alimentaires ainsi que ceux permettant la satisfaction de la prise alimentaire constitue l’objectif de cette formation. Le Master "Management de la sécurité alimentaire des villes" dure 16 mois, dont 12 en France. La formation est organisée autour de 8 Unités d’enseignement (UE) se déroulant de septembre à avril. Les enseignements sont dispensés en français. Les Unités d’Enseignement : Les UE transversales : Le système d’approvisionnement et de distribution alimentaire : sécurité et insécurité alimentaires, notion de filière, approche systémique dans l’approvisionnement et la distribution alimentaire (...) ; Politiques agricoles, marchés agricoles et souveraineté alimentaire : évolutions des politiques agricoles, l’OMC, (dé)régulation des échanges mondiaux, importations et facture alimentaire (...) ; L’accompagnement des projets : accompagnements technique et financier, les systèmes d’assurance... Les UE sectorielles : La production agricole et ses agricultures : les agricultures (vivrière, paysanne, écologiquement intensive, commerciale, industrielle, périurbaine) et leurs facteurs de production ; La récolte, la transformation et la distribution des produits alimentaires : les groupes d’aliments, les outils analytiques, les méthodes de stabilisation, de conservation, de transformation des produits alimentaires, la gestion de l’hygiène (...) ; L’approvisionnement et la distribution des produits alimentaires : l’analyse des filières, l’étude des flux de biens et de services relatifs à la sécurité alimentaire, les (infra)structures, le fonctionnement des marchés (...) ; Les approches nutritionnelle, socio-culturelle et éducative de l’alimentation : les notions nutritionnelles de base aux principaux stades de la vie, les contaminants, les pathologies nutritionnelles, les déterminants d’un modèle de consommation alimentaire, le modèle de consommation urbaine, les outils et méthodes d’éducation nutritionnelle (...) ; Démographie, urbanisation, utilisation des territoires et sécurité alimentaire : diagnostic initial, anticipation des évolutions territoriales...

Top Part time Masters in Biological & Life Sciences in Europe. Have you ever wondered where the word gut feeling comes from, or why stress induces abdominal discomfort? If so, this Master's programme may be of interest to you. Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics is a two-year international Master's programme based on PBL (Problem Based Learning) and designed to offer students scientific knowledge and competencies to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. It focuses on in-depth knowledge on how diet and nutrition, the intestinal microbes, the intestine and the brain interact, as well as: i) how this is related to aberrant function of the gut and the brain, ii) how this relates to clinical practice, and iii) how this can be elucidated by state-of-the-art clinical and experimental research. The programme also provides you with an understanding of: i) how cellular processes relate to organ functions, ii) how the (patho)physiology of gut-brain interactions relates to nutritional, microbiological, gastroenterological and neurobiological aspects (with a human and clinical perspective), and iii) how bioinformatics can be an important tool to reach that understanding. This knowledge is essential for the development of new strategies to diagnose, prevent and treat the often debilitating disorders related to gut and brain function. The programme is coordinated by and linked to the cross-disciplinary Nutrition Gut Brain Interactions Research Centre (http://www.oru.se/ngbi), which provides access to internationally leading researchers and human in vivo and ex vivo research facilities, both at the university and at the University Hospital, and at the same time a strong link to selected industrial partners.
