Track 1
Semester 1 – Food safety of the whole value chain – University of Turin
Semester 2 – Food System Management – University of Warsaw
Semester 3 – AgriFood Science and Engineering – University of Hohenheim
Semester 4 – Thesis – University of Turin

Programme structure

Semester 1 – University of Turin – Food safety of the whole value chain
The main subjects covered in the track will be the food safety of the whole chain from production to consumption, with insights of foodborne pathogens physiology and virulence, food toxicology, food safety management systems. Problem solving exercise will be carried out in the field of food safety.
Overarching module: SPOC Introduction to the Food System
Semester 2 – University of Warsaw – Food System Management
The track Food System Management is offered for those who want to invent and develop innovative solutions for the food sector, and simultaneously to have an impact on the commercialization process. The goal of the track is to educate people with entrepreneurial and responsible mindset who are able to identify market needs and opportunities, and manage projects generating values for customers. The track is prepared so that students, regardless of whether they had previously dealt with the theory and practice of management, are able to explore knowledge and develop skills in this discipline. The three designed modules cover the most crucial areas related to organisation management and the value chain. The knowledge and skills obtained during this tack provide foundations to apply for job vacancies as: production management and logistics, processes optimisation for production and logistics. Other exemplary job positions would be those of: new products developers, analysts of the broadly understood agri-food sector, consultants and advisers, specialists in food quality assurance and in food security management. The studies/track will promote entrepreneurship and self-employment by enhancing start-ups development.
Overarching module: Summer School Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Food System
Semester 3 – University of Hohenheim – AgriFood Science and Engineering
This track will cover the “front” end of the food system namely primary production principles as well as conversion and processing to value added ingredients and innovative food products. Some knowledge on use of byproduct streams will be provided. With primary production, a focus will be on agricultural technologies as well as some plant sciences. The module “AgFoodTech” provides an introduction and overview to the track, complemented by two electives from a pool of modules from the fields of food science or agricultural technology. IMPORTANT: students will be placed in elective modules by the UHOH team on the basis of availability, pedagogic fit and practicality of the combination.

Overarching module: SPOC Introduction to the Food System
Semester 2 – Autonomous University of Madrid – Functional Foods and Precision Nutrition
This track will allow the students to acquire knowledge and skills related to the action/s and effect/s of bioactive food compounds on human health status. The students will explore novel entrepreneurial venues through the application of functional foods specifically designed for precision nutrition, for both healthy individuals and chronic diseases patients. This objective will be pursued through training on cutting-edge methods and techniques within the area of Molecular Nutrition and Foodomics in order to understand the role of functional foods on maintaining/enhancing human health in a personalized manner. Concepts linked to genetics and genomics will be introduced so the students can immerse into the most recent aspects of precision nutrition and explore their relevance on consumer welfare.
Overarching module: Summer School Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Food System
Semester 3 – Aarhus University – Future Foods
This track will bring the student close to future foods on society, consumer, sensory and molecular level. It will give the student insigt in future sustainable food production of high value crops and novel animal-based food products including cell-based production, combined with food sensory science, innovation and product development in the food sector.

Overarching module: SPOC Introduction to the Food System
Semester 2 – Lund University – Consumer driven sustainable food processing
The track aims to provide an understanding of the interdisciplinary connections and tools of sustainable food processing to enable smart-systems, including their need in society and their environmental, economic and social impact. The track will introduce concepts of food production through efficient use of biomass and energy, through the whole production chain taking into account societal and consumer perspectives. Students will get an increased understanding of food processing with significant waste reduction along the food value chain, including packaging and logistics, as well as healthy and high quality food production. The students will be able to understand and react according to future trends in sustainable food processing.
