Our primary challenge is to connect the dots:

That is, to connect those invisible threads that by connecting neuroscience, ethnography, epigenetics, anthropology and psychology can give us a three-dimensional image of human experience.
That is why our journey is a continuous pilgrimage to destinations and people who help us learn, grow and work better. From these kernels of knowledge, each day, Thimus is enriched with ideas, methods, data and experiences, exponentially increasing our ability to find answers that were previously simply not within reach.

A key location for the future of alternative proteins, UC Berkeley’s Alt: Meat Lab is a crossroads of knowledge and industrial applications, where Thimus plays an important role in the field of cultural neuroscience. Here we contribute to developing lines of corporate-derived research, thanks to the vast skills made available to us. And all of this through an original approach, which has seen us promote the kitchen as a place to reflect on food humanism and the food design of the future, showing how neuroscience can immediately give us an accurate image of the emotional quality of our encounter with food.

Among the many cultural and spiritual places that could embody the sense of the human-centric approach to food, the Accademia Symposium is certainly among the most evocative. Housed inside the Franciscan Convent of Rodengo Saiano, whose original core dates back to the sixteenth century, the Academy is a place of teaching, but also of work and transformation of ingredients, of cultural reflection and a strong sense of the past and a desire for a balanced future. In this Academy, Thimus tasted the flavor of “wanting to do good” and instantly harmonized with the aims of this magical place. We will, therefore, offer educational modules on neuroscience and food, opportunities for public debate, summer schools and events for our Partners and Clients, also making this special place a center for research and experimentation.

Since 2017, Thimus has been an entrepreneurial partner of the Environmental Higher Education Institution of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. Thanks to this exchange and research relationship, we have supported two PhDs and expounded our vocation for sustainable business in conferences and academic events. Our CEO, Mario Ubiali, is also an external lecturer both at the ASA Master’s and at the degree course in Education Science. This kind of collaboration helps Thimus grow from a cultural perspective and offers inspiration on the themes of social, human and environmental sustainability. By hosting internships, teaching and mixing research teams, Thimus and Università Cattolica advance the debate and training on issues of fundamental entrepreneurial transformation, opening up new frontiers in the Italian debate.
