Overview

This track focuses on Sustainable Production

Ensure sustainable food production across the all food chain via the use of new “green-methods” to make the best use of nature-based, technological, digital, and space-based solutions, to deliver better climate and environmental results, increase climate resilience and reduce and optimise the use of inputs (e.g. pesticides, fertilisers). In this respect agriculture 4.0 and rationalisation of resources would contribute positively to support sustainable food production.

Programme structure

Semester 1 – 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.

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: Emerging Technologies Business Case Study

Semester 4 – Lund University – Thesis
