Circular Food Systems
The Master in Food Systems (MFS) is set up to create skills and knowledge crucial for tackling the most urgent challenges facing the food sector today. In the MFS partnership, we have identified a number of profiles that specifically address each of these challenges. All mobility paths in the MFS combine expertise from three different partner universities - the "home institution" and two other universities where students spend their 2nd and 3rd semester. Select the profile that best matches your area of interest, to find the mobility paths which offer the deepest focus on this area.
This track focuses on Circular Food Systems
A shift from our current linear model (make, use, dispose) to a circular food system is required. This implies reuse of resources, reduction and (re)-utilisation of side- and waste-streams to prevent food loss and waste and to allow nutrient recycling and reduction in GHG emissions as well as water and land use. This includes circular business models for sustainable Food Systems, and system thinking as a guide for the assessment of strengths and challenges of circularity processes.
The Master in Food Systems offers the following mobility path within this focus area:
