The programmes run for different periods of time, and you can choose between those that last: a few weeks, several months or over a year.

Our programmes cover various topics including sustainable agriculture & aquaculture, targeted nutrition, sustainable food packaging and many more!

  • Data management: develop and apply digital tools to access, manage, analyse and interpret data.

The WE Lead Food Programme enabled me to visualise the changes required.

"I consider the network one of the biggest advantages of the programme and I plan to continue to make use of it long after I graduate. The Master also made me realise that it’s a huge advantage to gain knowledge across many fields, rather than being a specialist in only one area. The course gave me the ability to look at things from a different, broader perspective and allowed me to assume the position of “dot-connector“ - so finding relationships between stakeholders and between seemingly unrelated things to better solve problems."
