Its ambition is to train groups of students, young researchers and professionals from different backgrounds, in creative thinking, innovation in Climate Friendly Healthy Convenient Food Solutions and entrepreneurship, with the final objective of translating innovative research solutions faster into real business cases. The summer school will focus on tools and concepts for starting a new business in the sustainable food area, or creating new products within an existing company.
The program utilizes the ﬂipped classroom concept, where online learning is combined with in-class teaching. It combines a web platform with unique content, which has been tested and optimized by the University of Hohenheim and the University of Torino, in conjunction with researchers who work at the highest level in food and sustainability research and related industrial partners. This platform will further be enriched with the Aarhus University expertise on Convenient food and climate friendly diets. The in-class activities will involve food industries and will be set in a competitive environment to engage talented students.
The program will be taught in 2020 at an exciting Food Ecosystem at Agro Food Park, a unique cluster for innovative companies and start-ups in the Food sector, at Aarhus University, DK.
