Summary
The overall aim of SUIT4Food is to introduce, teach and train early stage researchers in the area of sustainable Intervention technologies for controlling food safety and stability. The multilateral trans-European cooperation will foster both institutional collaboration and innovative problem based learning initiatives and therefore, innovation and creativity will be supported. This will strengthen the role of higher education as new educational practices, curricula, knowledge transfer strategies will be developed. Horizontal as transversal competences of the participating teachers will be provided to develop autonomous initiatives in problem based studies of complex food processes including the quantitative analysis of the microbial and enzymatic activity following the application of these technologies. This results in training the new generation of students with high quality skills and competences and consequently increasing their employability potential.
