The Centre is implementing an Action Plan within the University of Milan that includes an integrated set of actions aimed at triggering structural change processes conducive to gender equality and equal opportunities in the Faculties of Agriculture and Medicine, with selected actions concerning the whole University.

The plan establishes a strategic link to the 2015 International Expo, to be held in Milan, whose key issue (nutrition) is strictly connected with scientific and technological research, Medicine and Agriculture in particular, with an important role to be played by women scientists.
