Food System Master of Science Programme 2018

Food System Master of Science Programme 2018

In 2018, EIT Food will begin the initial phase of the development of EIT Food's flagship Food System Master Program, an integrated graduate degree program organized by 10 academic institutions and industrial partners from across EIT Foods pan-European partner network to prepare students to drive a future transformation of the food system and increase the competitiveness of their future employing companies. It promotes an integration of the food system by providing students with the opportunity to study consecutively at three institutions who provide distinctly different semester blocks focusing on different parts of the food system. This is coupled with a partner-mentored project/thesis work and non/academic activities offered by industrial partners.
