FIPDes at EFFOST 2018

6-8 November 2018 | Nantes, France

On the occasion of the 32nd EFFoST International Conference our four Partner Universities (APT, Lund, DIT, UNINA) presented a joint poster entitled: "A holistic and international approach to train the future talents in food innovation and product design: the case of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree FIPDES".

The FIPDes Programme Coordinator (B. Rega) and a FIPDes Alumnus (Rohit Srivastava, PhD candidate at INRA France) during a poster session.

The 32nd EFFoST International Conference was held in Nantes (France) from November 6th to 8th, 2018.
The presentation aimed to show how FIPDes is pinpointing the global training needs of innovation towards sustainable food systems.
Companies of different size and organisation (from multinationals to start-ups) need skilled and versatile professionals to improve their innovation potential. However, worldwide there is still a lack of trained international food professionals and entrepreneurs that embrace and merge the multidisciplinary aspects of food innovation and product design as a whole.
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Food Innovation and Product Design (FIPDes) has been created to meet these emerging needs and bring a European solution to the global challenges of sustainable design, production and consumption of food.
The competences of four recognized European Higher Education Institutions have been merged together to offer a deeply innovative learning approach integrating technical and horizontal skills.
