Professional Development Framework

EIT Food's Professional Development Framework aims to provide a key resource for the food sector by creating an integrated approach to develop a skilled, innovative workforce.

This activity will roll out the framework developed in 2019, and establish the certification basis for the food sector. In addition, the activity will develop two pilot programmes, one for STEM educators in the agrifood sector about entrepreneurship education, and a Mentor Academy for the coaches, mentors and experts supporting innovators in the agrifood sector.
