European Food Systems Education and Training (EFSET) Programme

European Food Systems Education and Training (EFSET) Programme

Increasingly, in order to solve complex, food-related problems, there is a need for multidisciplinary, collaborative approaches that simultaneously target different parts of the food system.

The aim of the European Food Systems Education and Training (EFSET) Programme is to help address this need by providing postgraduate students with unique and exciting opportunities to tackle real-world food system-related problems set by industry partners in a collaborative fashion. Through a series of innovative, on-line modules and face-to-face skills workshops, and opportunities to participate in a fully-funded international Away Weekend and Summer School, students will receive training in food systems analysis and intervention strategies. In the first phase the programme will consist of three academic and three industry partners in the UK, Germany and Italy. The longer-term objective is to establish a fully-integrated, pan-European network of EFSET Hubs across all EIT Food countries.
