Description

The Summer School aims at providing future professionals the critical skills and tools to understand current and future challenges in the food industry (e.g. processing, conservation, distribution, meal creation) and enable the transition towards a more sustainable industry.

The course is designed to integrate knowledge about food technology and the production side with social sciences and a wider social perspective, focusing on the impact food technology implies, with the disruption potential of production and consumption logics; nutrition patterns; agronomic practices; available raw materials, human, environmental and animal ethics that are associated to it. We aim at getting to the heart of the transition issues by having participants tackle the disconnect between agrifood, technology and society and unleash their creativity in terms of possible solutions and business ideas that can be created out of the issue itself.
