This information notice is not apply to websites external to the University even if consulted by way of links contained on the portal and themed websites.
This information notice describes the methods of managing the University’s web portal and the themed websites in relation to the processing of personal data of users who consult them, choose to register and/or use the online services.

1. Processing Controller

Consulting the University portal may involve the processing of data relating to identified or identifiable persons (see section below entitled “Types of Data Processed”).
Registration on the portal and subscription of the online services leads to the processing of personal data relating to individuals or entities.
The processing controller is the Università degli Studi di Milano with registered offices in Via Festa del Perdono, 7 – 20122 Milan.

2. Processing Managers

The processing in relation to the portal services takes place mainly at the University’s sites. It is performed by identified personnel specially appointed on the basis of the purposes of the requested and subscribed services.
For the processing in question, the University may make use of assistance from external companies, consultants, consortia, suppliers of software and operating services, by way of identified and appointed personnel, as part of the relevant purposes and in such a way as to ensure the maximum security and confidentiality of the data.

3. Types of Data Processed

3.1 Consultation of Portal: Browsing Data
The computer systems and application processes involved in the operation of the University portal acquire, during the course of their normal operation, some data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
That information is used to obtain statistical information on the use of the portal and to check its correct functioning and is not associated with identified users; however, by its nature and by association with data held by third parties, it could allow for the identification of the interested parties. This category includes, for example, the IP address of the system used to connect to the portal.
This data is removed from the systems after the preparation of the statistics and is stored offline exclusively to ascertain liability in the case of computer crimes and it may only be consulted upon request by the judicial authority.
3.2 Data provided voluntarily by the user when using the online services
In order to use the online services that involve authentication, registration or sending of e-mails, personal data provided freely by users is used according to different methods:
3.2.1 Online services for University students and staff
The personal data of students and graduates, acquired upon enrolment and registration or by any subsequent collection methods, and personal data of staff and/or collaborators of the University that may be acquired by way of the procedures and online services will be processed in order to perform the institutional activities of the University, within the limits established by the law and regulations, in compliance with the general principles of transparency, correctness and confidentiality as identified in the Regulation implementing the rules in relation to personal data protection [link to document]
3.2.2 Sending of e-mails to addresses identified on the portal
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses identified on the website involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, required to respond to the requests, along with any personal data included in the communication.

Professor Tiziana A.L. Brevini is the chair of CellFit a new European network of excellence (COST Action CA16119), with competence on all levels within fundamental biology, bio-engineering as well as clinical research. CellFit aims to translate the present basic knowledge in cell control, cell repair and regeneration from the laboratory bench to the clinical application. Furthermore, CellFit will create synergies, optimize the use of human and financial resources and foster the value of ex vivo models for European R&D operations.

Funds are available for a number of interesting activities aimed at young scientists including Training schools, Short Term Missions and Conferences.



L’Ateneo di Milano a luglio 2015 ha aderito a Research4Life.

Research4Life è uno spazio dove informare il pubblico (cittadini, Istituzioni, media e mondo scientifico) e proporre idee per lo sviluppo della ricerca biomedica e dove il tema dell’utilizzo degli animali a fini scientifici viene correttamente affrontato e veicolato nei confronti dell’opinione pubblica. Il messaggio principale che R4L vuole fare arrivare ad una platea molto ampia è “Migliorare la qualità di Vita, attraverso la diffusione della cultura della Ricerca scientifica".


COST Action BM1308 - Sharing advances on large animal models (SALAAM)

Dedicated to the themes of Translational Medicine this Action provides excellent opportunities for international networking and Short Term Missions around the Continent.


COST Action CM1406 Epigenetic Chemical Biology (epichembio)

Dedicated to Epigenetics, the heart of gene regulation that determines which genes are activated or silenced, this action establish the first European chemical biology network focused on this discipline.
Another excellent opportunity for Short Term Missions and Training Schools
