Programme structure

Semester 1 – Food safety of the whole value chain – University of Torino
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.

Semester 2 – Food System Management: Building Responsible, Consumer-Centric Organisations and Value Chains – University of Warsaw
The track Food System Management: Building Responsible, Consumer-Centric Organisations and Value Chains is offered for those who want to not only invent and develop innovative solutions for the food sector, but they are also determined to have an impact on the development and commercialization of them. It can be treated either as the main profile of education or a perfect complement to any other profile. The goal of the track is to educate a person with an entrepreneurial and responsible mindset who can identify market needs and opportunities, and manage projects generating customer value.

The track has been prepared so that students, regardless of whether they had previously dealt with the theory and practice of management, were 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 first module will even out the level of students’ knowledge of management methods and techniques and will provide opportunity to broaden the knowledge in the area of innovation management and supply chain management. The second module will bring the customers’ perspective to the students, so that the innovations created by them would reflect the needs of their future users and would successfully be commercialized. The third module focuses on managerial skills and a teamwork. This is where the profile of a responsible leader would be shaped; somebody capable of predicting the consequences of his decisions and flexible to find himself in a team work with various personalities.

Semester 3 – AgriFood Science and Engineering – University of Hohenheim
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. Two new introductory modules – AgFoodTech 1 and 2 will provide students with an introduction and overview to the specific track.
