Programme structure

Semester 1 – 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. A new module “AgFoodTech” will provide students with an introduction and overview to the specific track.

Semester 2 – Functional Foods and Precision Nutrition – Autonomous University of Madrid
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.

Semester 3 – Food integrity of the supply chains. Applied and advanced systems for food control – Queen’s University of Belfast
This track will cover from the environment to the consumer with an emphasis on incorporating new innovations with emerging technologies and how to design those get approval and acceptance for implementation.
