Programme structure

Semester 1 – 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 2 – Public Health Nutrition and the Consumer – University of Reading
The track will focus on the scientific background of public health nutrition and consumer choice, in particular the associations between diet and disease, the methods of nutritional epidemiology and public health nutrition interventions. The track will provide an understanding of the factors that influence food choice and behaviour in individuals, groups and populations. In addition, the specific issues associated with situations in which food choice is limited or controlled such as in hospitals and schools will be explored, plus the influence of commercial advertising and of healthy eating and other campaigns will be explored. The track will also include a food product re-formulation project to increase the nutritional quality of food product and assess how nutritional information is communicated to the general public.

Semester 3 – Functional Foods and Precision Nutrition – Universidad Autonoma de 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.
