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 – 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.
